OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Hamstery is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.464 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 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.

A ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. 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 20th in Europe and 1,715th in the world for Best Weather, with 318 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
