Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Hamstery is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.496 billion Hamsterians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Davetown. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The large but underdeveloped Hamsteryian economy, worth 745 trillion Seeds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,668 Seeds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hamstery's national animal is the Hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hamstery is ranked 91,739th in the world and 34th in Scandinavia for Most Authoritarian, with 0.14 Stalins.
