The Democratic States of Hashkin is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Bakker with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.008 billion Hashkinians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Weselton. The average income tax rate is 72.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Hashkinian economy, worth 670 trillion Hashkin Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,887 Hashkin Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, an extra hand on the leg will give a horse-and-a-half of lead in a hundred jiffies on seven furlongs, and the tightness of border controls in Hashkin leave a little to be desired. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hashkin's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hashkin is ranked 156,538th in the world and 4th in The Parliamentary Union of Nations for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -10.82 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
