The Empire of Hicksler is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Hicks with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, public floggings, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.485 billion Hickslerians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hicksville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Hickslerian economy, worth a remarkable 4,453 trillion Yellows a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 356,728 Yellows, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,323,283 per year while the poor average 3,438, a ratio of 966 to 1.

The police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, children playing with walkie-talkies are told to 'get a job', mandatory spouse selection pairs elderly apparatchiki with stunningly beautiful supermodels, and postcards from Hickslerian driving test centres are popular souvenirs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Hicksler's national animal is the Blaze, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of the holy tower.

Hicksler is ranked 61,373rd in the world and 12th in Imperium of the Wolves for Most Developed, scoring 62.02 on the Human Development Index.
