The Liberal Republic of Hokoan is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jose Martinez with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 906 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, although Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Longmen. The average income tax rate is 34.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hokoanese economy, worth 84.2 trillion Hokoan Yuan a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 92,950 Hokoan Yuan, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. Crime is totally unknown. Hokoan's national animal is the Hokoanese Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hokoan is ranked 58,460th in the world and 2,189th in the South Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 152,660.62 Standard Monetary Units.
