The Hangate of Bhikkustan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Surevi Bahadur Hang with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, fear of technology, and lack of airports. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 10.948 billion Bhikkustanis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kharnam. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bhikkustani economy, worth a remarkable 1,209 trillion rupees a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 110,493 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, anti-environmentalist dissidents must beware of government plants in their midst, parents ask their ten-year-olds for help with their government-mandated book reports, and rock and roll involves rolling literal rocks in prison. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bhikkustan's national animal is the king crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Bhikkustan is ranked 1,216th in the world and 3rd in The Western Isles for Best Weather, with 558 Meters Of Sunlight.
