The Republic of Hastralia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions and daily referendums. The democratic, devout population of 381 million Hastralians 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 18.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Hastralian economy, worth 15.4 trillion Bytecoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,335 Bytecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned penguinball fields, the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, Hastralia City's iconic yellow taxis are nowhere to be seen, and Hastralia is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hastralia's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
