The Cacophony of Wild Hunt is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Matilda of the Night with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, ban on automobiles, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 1.641 billion Hunters are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Devil's Hunting Grounds. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hunting economy, worth 164 trillion tithes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,116 tithes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Wild Hunt's national animal is the Black Hound, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cŵn Annwn.

Wild Hunt is ranked 161,523rd in the world and 9th in Palimpsest for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 542.91 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
