The Republic of Hamstery is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.41 billion Hamsterians 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, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Davetown. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.
The sizeable but stagnant Hamsteryian economy, worth 81.9 trillion Seeds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 8,700 Seeds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
