The Hazukite of Hazukenia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Pawal Ergilles with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.024 billion Hakuzens are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hazukenopolis. The average income tax rate is 85.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Hazukenian economy, worth 981 trillion Funts 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. 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 an amazing 243,903 Funts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Residential tower blocks are surrounded by warrens of concrete tunnels, the nation is famous for bravely sending wave after wave of its soldiers until the enemy runs out of bullets, CSI Forest is this year's hit new crime show, and weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hazukenia's national animal is the Green Speckled Otter, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hazukenism.

Hazukenia is ranked 168,866th in the world and 131st in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 11.61 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
