The Republic of Hokoan is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 515 million Hokoanese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Longmen. The average income tax rate is 28.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Hokoanese economy, worth 40.5 trillion Hokoan Yuan a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 78,628 Hokoan Yuan, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", the Hokoanese Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, the tightness of border controls in Hokoan leave a little to be desired, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hokoan's national animal is the Hokoanese Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hokoan is ranked 133,601st in the world and 5,734th in the South Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 31.66 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
