OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United States of General Hammond is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Major General George Hammond with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.77 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 39%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Automobile Manufacturing.

The nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, protests are prohibited from blocking traffic, the nation leads Stargate in per capita stalking, and the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed. 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 7th in Stargate and 9,714th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 5 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
