The Republic of Hyphen is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 552 million Hyphenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capolity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.2%.

The Hyphenian economy, worth 35.1 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 63,666 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.0 times as much as the poorest.

The arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, and unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Hyphen's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Hyphen is ranked 121,695th in the world and 6,218th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 28.76 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
