The Democratic States of Hyypia is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, daily referendums, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 389 million Hyypians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reina. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Hyypian economy, worth 16.1 trillion riises a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is 41,475 riises, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, Hyypians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hyypia's national animal is the snek, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hyypia is ranked 113,056th in the world and 4,572nd in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 6.41 on the Hayek Index.
