The Bulks as Bulkster of Hurnen is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Loose with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.774 billion 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 concentrates mainly on 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 69%. 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 114th in Balder and 1,966th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 10 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
