Hawk1

Population4.668 billion

The Republic of Hawk1 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.668 billion Hawk1ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hawk1ian economy, worth 634 trillion baht a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,855 baht, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Homeless people dying of starvation are thought to be a necessary cost of preventing terrorism, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, and serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hawk1's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hawk1 is ranked 22,496th in the world and 4th in The Hawks Nest for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 236.95 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
