The Daily Wanderings of Featured Hopper is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its closed borders, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 547 million Featured Hoppers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carrot City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.7%.
The all-consuming Featured Hopperian economy, worth 53.5 trillion carrots a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,729 carrots, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.
Surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned hopperball fields, foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, and the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service.
