The Golden Peacelands of Hagston is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tim Galek with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.309 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyhnberk. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hagstonian economy, worth 331 trillion Hagstones a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,230 Hagstones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, and children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life. Crime is totally unknown. 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 164,138th in the world and 18th in Laraniem for Most Authoritarian, with 457.84 milliStalins.
