The Foral Republic of Hatstheput is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.734 billion Hatstheputians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hatstheput City. The average income tax rate is 3.8%.
The all-consuming Hatstheputian economy, worth a remarkable 1,038 trillion Quasas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 118,858 Quasas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.
The debts of the father fall upon the son, the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Eckie-Ecola and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed, and computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hatstheput's national animal is the Seahorse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.
