The Free Land of Hurricane Alley is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by HurricaneJoe with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, digital currency, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 14.756 billion Hurricane Alleyians 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 tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HurricaneCity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Hurricane Alleyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,007 trillion coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 136,017 coins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 733,834 per year while the poor average 13,082, a ratio of 56.1 to 1.

Throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, clandestine emigration to countries with labor laws is all the rage, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, and drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Hurricane Alley's national animal is the animal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Hurricane Alley is ranked 129,733rd in the world and 90th in Nederland for Nudest, with 47.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
