The Anarchic Akrien Republic of Hapskina is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Keisor Gova with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.619 billion Hapskinians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Law & Order and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cuelan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.0%.

The all-consuming Hapskinian economy, worth 134 trillion Arts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 83,238 Arts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 263,085 per year while the poor average 20,107, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, prison visits increase substantially during election years, and stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Hapskina's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Zorfian-Joedaism.

Hapskina is ranked 151,883rd in the world and 8th in The Independent States of Akrieus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -6.64 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
