The Intersteller Commune of Hummakula is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Karl Vissarionovich Ulyanov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, enslaved workforce, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.7 billion Hummakans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albernata. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Hummakulan economy, worth a remarkable 1,140 trillion Humman Dollers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 242,622 Humman Dollers, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The law says that all Hummakans are created equal — no matter how they were created, young people avoid opening doors for the elderly with impunity, public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, and masterpieces by male artists are on display in the dumpsters behind the gallery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hummakula's national animal is the Ilyich Deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hummakula is ranked 24,492nd in the world and 3rd in Steam Islands for Most Developed, scoring 71.63 on the Human Development Index.
