OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Hamstery is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.177 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, liberal, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare 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.

Artists are pillars of society, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights. 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 28th in Europe and 2,378th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 44 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
