The Confederacy of Hideaway is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Representative with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 15.119 billion Hideawayians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Havenburgh. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The enormous but inefficient Hideawayian economy, worth a remarkable 1,041 trillion shrapnels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 68,882 shrapnels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, and crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hideaway's national animal is the Stunned Mullet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hideaway is ranked 170,085th in the world and 3rd in Monkey Island for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.33 Kickbacks Per Hour.
