The United States of General Hammond is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Major General George Hammond with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 8.46 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.
The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stargate Command. The average income tax rate is 28.7%.
The frighteningly efficient General Hammondian economy, worth a remarkable 1,045 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 123,626 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. General Hammond's national animal is the Asgard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
General Hammond is ranked 38th in Stargate and 107,420th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -254.1 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
