The POTCO Server of Hassigos is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.37 billion Armed Guards are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Hassigosian economy, worth 391 trillion Hassigis a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,736 Hassigis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, the blind lead the blind in social welfare, the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, and heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Hassigi treacle machine. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hassigos's national animal is the Hassigosi Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Hassigos is ranked 27,577th in the world and 2nd in The Meme Must Go On for Most Politically Free, scoring 79.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
