The Sultanate of Hookah Castle is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 247 million Hookah Castleans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.4%.

The powerhouse Hookah Castlean economy, worth 19.3 trillion Tobaccos a year, is dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 78,273 Tobaccos, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 415,349 per year while the poor average 7,798, a ratio of 53.3 to 1.

Kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Hookah Castle City, and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hookah Castle's national animal is the Alligator.

Hookah Castle is ranked 229,090th in the world and 110th in Founderless for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 17.44 Tourists Per Hour.
