OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

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, cynical population of 7.363 billion General 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 on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stargate Command. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Automobile Manufacturing.

Skateparks can be found in every city, the government has become increasingly militant, private law firms are unheard of, and much of General Hammond's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. 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 46th in Stargate and 109,614th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -22 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
