The Kingdom of Hakketomat is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jasan with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, flagrant waste-dumping, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.875 billion Hakketomatians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education and Defense are also considered important, 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 2,847 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 261,797 Hugs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,400,600 per year while the poor average 3,020, a ratio of 794 to 1.

Many Hakketomatians are their brothers' keepers, grinning punters say that casino roulette is the greatest high that life has to offer, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and it's rumored that Marche Noire knows what the nation's generals eat for breakfast. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hakketomat's national animal is the Koala, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hakketomat is ranked 2,695th in the world and 33rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 7,136.19 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
