The Emirate of Hasonia is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.987 billion Hasonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hasonia City. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hasonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,042 trillion Kötels a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 209,064 Kötels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", visions of giant pink Sloths are a common side effect after Hasonians eat their meals, and family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hasonia's national animal is the Sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hasonia is ranked 17,701st in the world and 197th in 10000 Islands for Highest Economic Output, with 1,042 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
