The Kingdom of Hakketomat is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jasan with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, infamous sell-swords, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 20.04 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 Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. 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 5,818 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 290,348 Hugs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,674,593 per year while the poor average 3,190, a ratio of 838 to 1.

Seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', a popular artist is claiming that a raw steak with a dog turd on it is a portrait of Jasan, wanting a better life for your child is prohibited by a clause in the criminal code, and the daily weather forecast often predicts light showers of debris. 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 291,453rd in the world and 833rd in 10000 Islands for Best Weather, with -427 meters of sunlight.
