Population559 million

Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The thriving Pacific Hakkean economy, worth 44.4 trillion Hugs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. Average income is 79,379 Hugs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 280,979 per year while the poor average 16,191, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.
