Huks Gares

Population7.009 billion

LeaderIsaac Reynolds


The Republic of Huks Gares is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Isaac Reynolds with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, devout population of 7.009 billion Huks Garesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Huksopolis. The average income tax rate is 57.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Huks Garesian economy, worth 587 trillion deniers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,875 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Huks Gares's radio stations, and a referendum must be held in order for any new law to be passed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Huks Gares's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Garonian.

Huks Gares is ranked 43,650th in the world and 1,964th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 83,875.54 Standard Monetary Units.
