The Federal States of Hanskarr is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President John Chew with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, aversion to nipples, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.127 billion Hanskarrans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hareldam. The average income tax rate is 68.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Hanskarran economy, worth 650 trillion Hanskarr credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 157,682 Hanskarr credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, and mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hanskarr's national animal is the Hanskarr Deathwolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hanskarr is ranked 35,113th in the world and 1,227th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 68.22 on the Rand Index.
