The Nomadic Peoples of Hakons is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed population of 8.157 billion Hakonites are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 39.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Hakonsian economy, worth 253 trillion Sheckles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 31,120 Sheckles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Violent criminals are doomed to be hunted by a psychotic billionaire, businesses are scrambling to adapt to the government's mandate that 'time and measurement no longer exist', citizens have never heard foreign radio, and guns are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hakons's national animal is the Yak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hakons is ranked 97,329th in the world and 2,824th in Balder for Most Pro-Market, scoring 42.8 on the Rand Index.
