The Republic of Pacific Hakke is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 881 million Pacific Hakkeans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. 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, with Education, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The thriving Pacific Hakkean economy, worth 69.9 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 Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, 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.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and bins outnumber trees in city parks. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pacific Hakke's national animal is the Mermaid, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Pacific Hakke is ranked 147,066th in the world and 6,399th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 569.49 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
