The name "Hipharpigland" refers to the land of hippos, hares and pigs. These animals, together with others in a comic, have lots of funny and exciting adventures. The inhabitants of hipharppigland are all trying to run a democracy together. There is already a government with Chancellor Barbara Broadfoot, Foreign Minister Earnest and Interior Minister Harold. But actually there is not much else that works.

The website includes a lot of games, resources, films, materials which are designed for childrens use and help the to develop media cpompetences as well as learn about politics and critical refelction about media.
