The HaiRy BUNzZZ of De Hork is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by a ikharul dede with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, ritual sacrifices, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.245 billion arulshe are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of a aboderh ikhak. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient arulderh economy, worth a remarkable 6,632 trillion derhkhes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 408,309 derhkhes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,789,251 per year while the poor average 58,684, a ratio of 30.5 to 1.

Sneezing in public is a capital offense, bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, and kids are exceptionally good at digging holes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. De Hork's national animal is the bo'i borulukh, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Esheturborul Badit.

De Hork is ranked 157,262nd in the world and 6th in toilet arsonist appreciation society for Most Income Equality, scoring 3.28 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
