OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Hamstery is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 5.933 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever 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 97%. 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.

The nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. 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 428th in Europe and 120,466th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -10 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
