The Social Democratic Dominion of Hopal is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister John Stophoe with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.032 billion Hopalians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hopton. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hopalian economy, worth 264 trillion Currents a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 87,272 Currents, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, it takes a village to catch a criminal, Prime Minister John Stophoe's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, and people make a career out of medical voyeurism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hopal's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hopal is ranked 241,489th in the world and 10th in Union of Democrats for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 20.05 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
