The Dominion of Hakkelandia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jasan with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 12.249 billion Hakkelandians 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 minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corellia. The average income tax rate is 2.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hakkelandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,651 trillion Hugs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 134,792 Hugs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, black tea is only available on the black market, and fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hakkelandia's national animal is the Buffalo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hakkelandia is ranked 146,540th in the world and 2nd in The Hakketomatian Commonwealth for Most Politically Free, scoring 54.48 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
