The Community of Huntfield-Hackham Bogans is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Grand Master Bogan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, fear of technology, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.964 billion Dole Bludgers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elizabeth-Salisbury Housing Trust Zone. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Bogan economy, worth a remarkable 1,395 trillion Centrelink Dole Payments a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 233,954 Centrelink Dole Payments, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,166,412 per year while the poor average 2,423, a ratio of 893 to 1.

Surfers ride tsunamis of record height and toxicity, a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that she is in fact a crook after all, police reduce their paperwork by refusing to arrest anyone, and foreign governments regularly accuse the Bogan military of war crimes. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Huntfield-Hackham Bogans's national animal is the Centrelink Worker, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult of the Dole Queue.

Huntfield-Hackham Bogans is ranked 68,690th in the world and 9th in Door Monster Entertainment for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 4,207.72 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
