OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United States of General Hammond is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Major General George Hammond with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.67 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 concentrates mainly on 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.

The mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of General Hammond's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers. 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 5th in Stargate and 2,529th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with 326 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
