OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Hamstery is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.359 billion Hamsterians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Equality and the Environment are secondary priorities. 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.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, laws are littered with references to cheese, and skateparks can be found in every city. 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 364th in Europe and 115,716th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -20 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
