The Federal Republic of HORLALEK is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by AHMED with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, hard-working population of 9.556 billion horlalekians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unify City. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient HORLALEKian economy, worth a remarkable 1,900 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 198,914 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, and trust-fund babies line up for places in community college. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HORLALEK's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

HORLALEK is ranked 3,662nd in the world and 97th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 16,003.61 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
