The Confederacy of Hideaway is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Representative with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 17.607 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 97.2%.

The enormous but inefficient Hideawayian economy, worth a remarkable 1,267 trillion shrapnels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 71,995 shrapnels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers, parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, the decommissioned tank divisions of other nations are being bought up en masse by Hideaway, and forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies. 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 207,686th in the world and 30th in Albion for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -32.74 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
