The Republic of Hawk52 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, devout population of 3.066 billion Hawk52ians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.2%.

The strong Hawk52ian economy, worth 183 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 59,712 guilders, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

War vets look after war animals, internet trolls are considered valiant supporters of the right to free speech, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and nobody knows why the caged cobra sings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hawk52's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hawk52 is ranked 80,925th in the world and 59th in The Hawks Nest for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 86.95 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
