The Bulks as Bulkster of Hurnen is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Loose with an iron fist, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.561 billion, 3.549 billion of whom are zombies, Hurnenians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Education are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hurnen City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, believers must practice religion behind church doors lest the government smite them with a mighty fine, government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, and morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hurnen's national animal is the Swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Belief in your Rugby ballz, and its currency is the Gold coin.

Hurnen is ranked 105th in Balder and 2,006th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 20 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Hurnen is currently considering its options.
