The Republic of Hamletus is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Giannis Pax with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.846 billion Hamletusians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenicia. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hamletusian economy, worth 344 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 121,053 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, and Violetist maidens who fall for an outsider must leave their violet light districts in shame. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hamletus's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Hamletusian Catholicism.

Hamletus is ranked 6,200th in the world and 127th in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.86 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
