The United Kingdom of Hard Coast is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service. The democratic population of 311 million Hard Coastians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperi Hard Coast. The average income tax rate is 48.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Hard Coastian economy, worth 12.3 trillion Oceanic Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,649 Oceanic Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All guns must be registered, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, judicial torture is outsourced overseas, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Imperi Hard Coast. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hard Coast's national animal is the Iron Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hard Coast is ranked 120,537th in the world and 100th in St Abbaddon for Highest Economic Output, with 12.3 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
