OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

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 keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.857 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 on the agenda. 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.

Farmers are struggling to keep up with demand for local produce, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and Asgards are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide. 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 4th in Stargate and 8,185th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 63 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
