The Holy Lucky Golden Spear of Hulldom is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gustave Ardriel with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.908 billion Hulldomians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gorton City. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hulldomian economy, worth 906 trillion Great Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 184,784 Great Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The people's love for Gustave Ardriel is little more than self-preservation, the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation. Crime is totally unknown. Hulldom's national animal is the Driven Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Hulldom is ranked 21,655th in the world and 54th in Thaecia for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,164.19 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
