The Kingdom of SirHardHead is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.609 billion SirHardHeadians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient SirHardHeadian economy, worth 920 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 139,244 Shlongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for SirHardHead, a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, professional athletes juggle part-time jobs to avoid bankruptcy, and SirHardHeadians incessantly needle their doctors for relief. 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 5,693rd in the world and 252nd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,678.07 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
