The 𝗚𝗼𝗹𝗱𝗲𝗻 𝗙𝗶𝗲𝗹𝗱𝘀 of Hagston is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by 𝗧𝗶𝗺 𝗚𝗮𝗹𝗲𝗸 with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.591 billion Hagstonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 𝗟𝘆𝗵𝗻𝗯𝗲𝗿𝗸. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hagstonian economy, worth 765 trillion 𝗛𝗮𝗴𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗻𝗲s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,896 𝗛𝗮𝗴𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗻𝗲s, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, and 𝗟𝘆𝗵𝗻𝗯𝗲𝗿𝗸 spends billions upgrading public transport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hagston's national animal is the 𝗪𝗶𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗲 𝗪𝗮𝗴𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗹, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is 𝗙𝗶𝗹𝗼𝘀𝗼𝗳𝗶𝘀𝗺.

Hagston is ranked 16,290th in the world and 4th in Laraniem for Smartest Citizens, with 70.74 quips per hour.
