The United States of General Hammond is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Major General George Hammond with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.22 billion Hammondians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stargate Command. The average income tax rate is 47%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Automobile Manufacturing.

Students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. General Hammond's national animal is the Asgard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Dollar.

General Hammond is ranked 42nd in Stargate and 117,188th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -26 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
