Athrid HullHund

Population5.703 billion

CapitalNew HullHund City


The Borderlands of Athrid HullHund is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 5.703 billion Athrid HullHundians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New HullHund City. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Athrid HullHundian economy, worth 455 trillion Lithuamiuns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 79,944 Lithuamiuns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, the entire entry for Athrid HullHund in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', and machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Athrid HullHund's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lobotism.

Athrid HullHund is ranked 247,732nd in the world and 6,881st in the West Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
