The Nomadic Peoples of Hoagie is a huge, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 759 million Hoagieans 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.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 55.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Hoagiean economy, worth 36.1 trillion wawas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 47,505 wawas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, people invite random old men into their homes to play with their kids, citizens are required to report any and all incidents of prayer to their local Religious Affairs Officer, and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. Crime is totally unknown. Hoagie's national animal is the goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Hoagie is ranked 92,864th in the world and 2nd in AMURICA for Largest Governments, scoring 16.16 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
