The Republic of Hamletus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Iohannes with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.842 billion Hamletusians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenicia. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hamletusian economy, worth 212 trillion credits a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 115,392 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The tightness of border controls in Hamletus leave a little to be desired, billions of credits are spent to take high-quality photos of the Phoenix Nebula, Hamletusian watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, and knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy. 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 27,351st in the world and 234th in 10000 Islands for Highest Drug Use, scoring 94.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
