Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Hamstery is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its smutty television, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.954 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 98.6%.

The large but sluggish Hamsteryian economy, worth 693 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 58,039 Seeds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glamping Hamsterians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Hamsterians, and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. 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 2,216th in the world and 5th in Scandinavia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.32 Years.
