The Federated Technocratic Oligarchy of The Most Glorious Hack is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Doctor Josef Specter with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 31.279 billion Hackers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chiba City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Thulish economy, worth an astonishing 12,632 trillion chits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Retail. 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 151,541st in the world and 9th in That Place Over There for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -89.27 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
