The Social Democratic Dominion of Hopal is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister John Stophoe with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.02 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hopton. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Hopalian economy, worth 66.6 trillion Tongs 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Tourism. Average income is 65,320 Tongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. 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 185,527th in the world and 28th in Union of Democrats for Largest Black Market, with 14.6 billion Standard Monetary Units.
