OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Hamstery is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.709 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 Social Welfare 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.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Hamsterdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, punitive tariffs protect local industry, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. 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 372nd in Europe and 110,952nd in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -127.3 Insults Per Minute (net).
