The United Socialist States of Hanita is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed population of 247 million Hanitans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 27.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Hanitan economy, worth 18.9 trillion Hanaitan Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 76,546 Hanaitan Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Hanita, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hanita's national animal is the Hanita White Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hanita is ranked 149,486th in the world and 5,846th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 27.69 Effective Tax Rate.
