The Democratic States of Hashkin is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Bakker with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.783 billion Hashkinians 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 Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Weselton. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hashkinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,051 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 common. Average income is an impressive 135,062 Hashkin Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, and a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted. 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 46,582nd in the world and 5th in The Parliamentary Union of Nations for Most Politically Free, scoring 73.62 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
