Giant Hawku

Population1.638 billion


The Republic of Giant Hawku is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and frequent executions. The hard-working population of 1.638 billion Giant Hawkuans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.7%.

The Giant Hawkuan economy, worth 62.3 trillion Yafs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,016 Yafs, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, one does not simply walk into the tundra, students do more community service than homework, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Giant Hawku's national animal is the Hound, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Giant Hawku is ranked 172,929th in the world and 3rd in the dipomy federation for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -1.67 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
