The United States of General Hammond is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Major General George Hammond with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.56 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Automobile Manufacturing.

International tensions are high as General Hammond threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, 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, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime is moderate. 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 7,064th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 154 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
