The 𝕲𝖔𝖑𝖉𝖊𝖓 𝕱𝖎𝖊𝖑𝖉𝖘 of Hagston is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Tim Galek with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.588 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyhnberk. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hagstonian economy, worth 528 trillion Golds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,511 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Re-education centers are being added to most prisons, transgender and agender are on the education agenda, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows. 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 215,610th in the world and 25th in Laraniem for Most Primitive, scoring -285.58 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
