The Armed Republic of THE REGIME OF HAPPYLAND is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Randini The Great with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, rampant corporate plagiarism, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.377 billion HAPPYLANDIANS are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joyous. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong REGIME OF HAPPYLANDian economy, worth 404 trillion Cheers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 170,286 Cheers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

State officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Randini The Great's portrait, a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, sushi is sold on the black market, and parties that are too noisy are broken up to prevent disturbing wildlife. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. THE REGIME OF HAPPYLAND's national animal is the Puppy dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

THE REGIME OF HAPPYLAND is ranked 264,588th in the world and 13,518th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -13.42 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
