The Space Empire of Zaberaz Hapang is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Senate with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.235 billion Hapangians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Campton. The average income tax rate is 15.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Hapangian economy, worth 491 trillion Galactic Shenes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 219,894 Galactic Shenes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, a light facial coating of soot is seen as the mark of an honest and hardworking man, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, and the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zaberaz Hapang's national animal is the Black Beak Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Zaberaz Hapang is ranked 118,912th in the world and 571st in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,429.08 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
