The People's Republic of Hurtful Thoughts is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 32.27 billion Hurties are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hurtian economy, worth a remarkable 6,432 trillion thoughts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 199,324 thoughts, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,292,133 per year while the poor average 12,296, a ratio of 105 to 1.

Baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas", and when people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hurtful Thoughts's national animal is the dodo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hurtful Thoughts is ranked 27,986th in the world and 2nd in Voxia for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5,314.64 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
