The United Kingdom of Zaberaz Hapang is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Kalen II with an even hand, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.485 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Campton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Hapangian economy, worth a remarkable 1,497 trillion Galactic Shenes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 333,966 Galactic Shenes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,091,645 per year while the poor average 76,799, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zaberaz Hapang's national animal is the Black Beak Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Zaberaz Hapang is ranked 10,453rd in the world and 99th in 10000 Islands for Most Patriotic, with 45.15 flags saluted per person per day.
