Overview Factbook Dispatches Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic States of Hashkin is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Bakker with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.931 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, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Weselton. The average income tax rate is 69.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Hashkinian economy, worth 382 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 130,435 Hashkin Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax Hashkin Dollars each year, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, and on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life. 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 175,226th in the world and 21st in The Parliamentary Union of Nations for Fattest Citizens, with 4.57 Obesity Rate.
