The Emirate of HC5 is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies and compulsory military service. The hard-working population of 5.039 billion HC5ians 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 Education. The average income tax rate is 34.3%.

The HC5ian economy, worth 221 trillion Deneroes a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,031 Deneroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, appendix transplant figures have recently doubled, and translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HC5's national animal is the Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

HC5 is ranked 141,103rd in the world and 61st in Indian Royals for Most Armed, with 0.29 Weapons Per Person.
