The Golden Peacelands of Hagston is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Tim Galek with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.971 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, outspoken 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 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hagstonian economy, worth 375 trillion Hagstones a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,638 Hagstones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, and therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads. Crime 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 Hagstonian Trust.

Hagston is ranked 18,443rd in the world and 1st in Laraniem for Most Influential, scoring 2,130 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
