The Holy Empire of Happiness- is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 9.409 billion Happy People are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joy. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Happy economy, worth 904 trillion Tears a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 96,164 Tears, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 420,483 per year while the poor average 13,874, a ratio of 30.3 to 1.

A formerly quiet little town is now booming as both a cult centre and a tourist attraction, big game hunters travel to Happiness- to try their hand at shark-shooting, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, and in a fit of passion Leader has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Happiness-'s national animal is the Cougar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Happiness- is ranked 40,996th in the world and 18th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,055.12 tourists per hour.
