The Unexplained Phenomenon of Hurdergaryp is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Staatshoofd with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.742 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 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hurdergarypian economy, worth a remarkable 1,729 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 135,700 florijns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Programmers often reinvent the wheel, Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, Staatshoofd's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, and good-looking soldier boys have celebrity status amongst the nation's homosexuals. 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 47,029th in the world and 181st in Forest for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
