The People's Republic of Hurtful Thoughts is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, suspicion of poets, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.258 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, with Defense, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hurtian economy, worth a remarkable 5,869 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 200,617 thoughts, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 826,774 per year while the poor average 32,049, a ratio of 25.8 to 1.

The nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, many marriages go virtually unconsummated, and the navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have. 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 171,715th in the world and 5th in Voxia for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -17.03 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
