OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Hamstery is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.69 billion Hamsteryians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Social Equality and the Environment are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Davetown. The average income tax rate is 98%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, Hamstery's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, and all 'unconventional' weaponry has been banned. Crime is totally unknown. Hamstery's national animal is the Hamster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Seed.

Hamstery is ranked 34th in Europe and 2,649th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 40 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
