The Fiefdom of Kingdom of Hapsteld is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by King Oswald Wellington of Huckerfort II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 869 million Hapstelians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tethelsten. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kingdom of Hapsteldian economy, worth 134 trillion Rambleries a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 154,546 Rambleries, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 913,352 per year while the poor average 12,097, a ratio of 75.5 to 1.

Doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, and wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kingdom of Hapsteld's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Kingdom of Hapsteld is ranked 178,371st in the world and 6,583rd in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 43.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
