The Republic of Huks Gares is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Isaac Reynolds with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 8.812 billion Huks Garesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt 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 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Huks Garesian economy, worth 767 trillion deniers a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,128 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, lumberjacks only use certified eco-friendly chainsaws, the government has outlawed extremist parties, and kids refer to anything below the neck as "the parts that shall not be named". 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 25,798th in the world and 1,003rd in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,597.5 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
