Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of SirHardHead is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, otherworldly petting zoo, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.358 billion SirHardHeadians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Smiles. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient SirHardHeadian economy, worth 753 trillion Shlongs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,606 Shlongs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SirHardHead's national animal is the Donkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

SirHardHead is ranked 3,409th in the world and 157th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 132.25 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
