Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic States of Hashkin is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor Bakker with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.576 billion Hashkinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Weselton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.0%.

The all-consuming Hashkinian economy, worth 337 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. Average income is an impressive 131,066 Hashkin Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

The police turn a blind eye to desecration if it's done in the name of religion or protest, abortions are routinely performed in Hashkin's hospitals, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and the government is slowly introducing social welfare programs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hashkin's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hashkin is ranked 30,131st in the world and 12th in The Parliamentary Union of Nations for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,774.6 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
