The Republic of Hothorand is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 806 million Hothorandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hothorand City. The average income tax rate is 28.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hothorandian economy, worth 96.1 trillion Gouldens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,268 Gouldens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who don't follow a major religion are closely monitored for signs of self-harm, the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Eckie-Ecola and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and the number of students attending university has reached a record high. Crime is totally unknown. Hothorand's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Hothorand is ranked 76,425th in the world and 2,999th in the Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 69.07 Workforce Participation Rate.
