The People's Republic of Hurtful Thoughts is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 36.369 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, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hurtian economy, worth a remarkable 7,414 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 amazing 203,858 thoughts, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,391,644 per year while the poor average 10,818, a ratio of 128 to 1.

They say that Leader's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia, shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, Hurtian soldiers know how to create single mothers in more ways than one, and it's best not to ask what goes into Hurtful Thoughts City Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices. Crime is pervasive, 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 270,794th in the world and 3rd in Nascivya for Most Income Equality, scoring 0.78 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
