The Unexplained Phenomenon of Hurdergaryp is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Staatshoofd with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.861 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 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hurdergarypian economy, worth 782 trillion florijns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 133,579 florijns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most ambassadors from Hurdergaryp retire only a few years after being appointed, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. 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 164,389th in the world and 252nd in Forest for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -15.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
