The Foral Kingdom of Hatstheput is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.932 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, although Industry and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hatstheput City. The average income tax rate is 4.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hatstheputian economy, worth a remarkable 1,084 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 109,169 Quasas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 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 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.

Hatstheput is ranked 78,804th in the world and 226th in Anteria for Most Inclusive, scoring 105.16 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
