The Free Land of Hurricane12 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nash Roberts with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.824 billion Hurricane12ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Eye of the Storm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Hurricane12ian economy, worth 286 trillion Millibars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 101,338 Millibars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 311,463 per year while the poor average 25,488, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.

"What's the Frequency, Nash Roberts?" is a favorite phrase of backyard radio broadcasters when interrupting official diplomatic channels, teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and half-submerged and flooded seaside hotels are technically still next to the beach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hurricane12's national animal is the Hurricane Toad, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hurricane12 is ranked 202,999th in the world and 13th in Hurricane 12 for Most Politically Free, scoring 35.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
