The Federated Technocratic Oligarchy of The Most Glorious Hack is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Doctor Josef Specter with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants.

Average income is an amazing 403,861 chits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,070,262 per year while the poor average 14,734, a ratio of 208 to 1.

Major internet servers have acquired citizenship, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, much of The Most Glorious Hack's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and the entire country is an urban wasteland as the well-to-do commute from space (The Most Glorious Hack has found 2 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Most Glorious Hack's national animal is the voormis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Tsathogguism.

The Most Glorious Hack is ranked 178,008th in the world and 7th in That Place Over There for Longest Average Lifespans, with 27 Years.
