The Dogtatorship of Hoochlandia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its feral children, smutty television, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.071 billion Hoochlandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barkampton. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hoochlandian economy, worth 590 trillion dogfoods a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,053 dogfoods, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Parties that are too noisy are broken up to prevent disturbing wildlife, hedge fund managers are diversifying into herbaceous borders, motorway service stations often have a higher population than the hinterland villages that the roads lead to, and endangered species face obesity instead of extinction. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Hoochlandia's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hauhauism.

Hoochlandia is ranked 34,145th in the world and 153rd in Forest for Highest Economic Output, with 590 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
