Hectorville

The Republic of Hectorville is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, disturbing lack of elderly people, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.573 billion Hectorvilleans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 69.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Hectorvillean economy, worth 683 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 149,418 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, morale within the seismologist community has hit rock bottom, military pistols are more secure than the national treasury, and only toddlers and the elderly watch television before 23:00. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hectorville's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hectorville is ranked 229,769th in the world and 18th in Space Sector RPRA for Most Armed, with 0.16 Weapons Per Person.
