The Kingdom of Hakketomat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jasan with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 14.288 billion Hakketomatians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palais d'Entreprise. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hakketomatian economy, worth a remarkable 3,987 trillion Hugs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 279,084 Hugs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,563,829 per year while the poor average 3,158, a ratio of 811 to 1.

The paparazzi publicize Royal scandals with the utmost delight, a policy of plausible deniability helps protect the government from athletic doping scandals, teddy bears and pajamas have replaced briefcases and suits in Hakketomat's offices, and the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hakketomat's national animal is the Koala, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hakketomat is ranked 1,139th in the world and 23rd in 10000 Islands for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 323.58 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
