LeaderPresident Yelm


The Republic of Hunem is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Yelm with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.168 billion Huns 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 prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Intermarium. The average income tax rate is 21.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Hunnic economy, worth a remarkable 1,507 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 244,483 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM, the debts of the father fall upon the son, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Hunem's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hunem is ranked 1,179th in the world and 10th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Fattest Citizens, with 57.16 Obesity Rate.
