Chris Hallett

Population8.323 billion

LeaderVirtuous Mentor


The Democratic Republic of Chris Hallett is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Virtuous Mentor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.323 billion Friends 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.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hallettopolis. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Friendian economy, worth a remarkable 1,059 trillion Dollarydoos a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,310 Dollarydoos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', prices for nearly everything reach all time highs as business tax breaks are discontinued, advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, and police aim to defeat hatred with love with their "hugs-for-thugs" program. Crime is totally unknown. Chris Hallett's national animal is the Velociraptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chris Hallett is ranked 181,035th in the world and 9,618th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -19.8 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
