Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of SirHardHead is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.039 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 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient SirHardHeadian economy, worth 830 trillion Shlongs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,564 Shlongs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, foreign investment has dropped to a trickle after laws were passed preventing investors from taking their earnings abroad, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, and restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in SirHardHead. 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 18,759th in the world and 920th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 211.54 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
