The Unexplained Phenomenon of Hurdergaryp is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Staatshoofd with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.139 billion Hurdergarypians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kjeld. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hurdergarypian economy, worth a remarkable 1,227 trillion florijns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 134,268 florijns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis, atheist missionaries spread doubt overseas, and the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hurdergaryp's national animal is the koningspoedel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hurdergaryp is ranked 9,297th in the world and 73rd in Forest for Highest Poor Incomes, with 106,064.32 Standard Monetary Units.
