The People's Republic of Hurtful Thoughts is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 32.725 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 6,535 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 199,718 thoughts, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,299,727 per year while the poor average 12,188, a ratio of 106 to 1.

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, Leader is rumored to have teleportation powers, Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, and women don't report crimes to the emergency services for fear of being arrested. 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 102,146th in the world and 3rd in Voxia for Nudest, with 130.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
