The Commonwealth of Treehound is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 792 million Treehoundians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chestnutsia. The average income tax rate is 64.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Treehoundian economy, worth 22.5 trillion Hounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 28,384 Hounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, and white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Treehound's national animal is the Dachshund, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Treehound is ranked 184,704th in the world and 999th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 28,384.57 Standard Monetary Units.
