The Penitent Republic of Hamatu is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Great Goddess Who Leads with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.162 billion Palāḫu are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nagbu. The average income tax rate is 55.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Palāḫu economy, worth 29.8 trillion Kaspus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 25,610 Kaspus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hamatu has designated Nagbu as its capital city, the 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, and the Federal Council of Hamatu has been announced as the new Head of State. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hamatu's national animal is the Sirrush, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hamatu is ranked 178,478th in the world and 7,201st in Osiris for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 245.19 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
