The Empire of Hamronica is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 19.528 billion Hamronicans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Public Transport receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hamronica City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hamronican economy, worth a remarkable 6,795 trillion wargs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 348,000 wargs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, trespassers entering Leader's office are immediately vaporized, Animal is one of the most popular forenames in Hamronica, and bar brawls are an hourly occurrence. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hamronica's national animal is the animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hamronica is ranked 161,803rd in the world and 7,022nd in the South Pacific for Most Devout, with 1.71 Prayers Per Hour.
