The Nomadic Peoples of Hepcats is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Martin Wagner with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.463 billion Hepcats are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austin. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hepcatsian economy, worth 355 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,556 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, escalators are avoided at all costs, robosexual marriages are increasingly common, and hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hepcats's national animal is the mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hepcats is ranked 128,938th in the world and 1st in Old School Furry for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 680.8 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
