The Republic of HAPAM is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Happy with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.152 billion HAPAMians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Devil. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient HAPAMian economy, worth 279 trillion Pesos a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,707 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
HAPAM has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, the government is avowedly secular, and half-submerged and flooded seaside hotels are technically still next to the beach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HAPAM's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hapamianity.
