The Democratic Republic of Hatstheput is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.05 billion Hatstheputians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hatstheput City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The all-consuming Hatstheputian economy, worth 634 trillion Quasas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 125,616 Quasas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 654,837 per year while the poor average 12,985, a ratio of 50.4 to 1.

Programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights, celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, and major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hatstheput's national animal is the Seahorse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism and Protestantism.

Hatstheput is ranked 3,278th in the world and 8th in Anteria for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 654,837.83 Standard Monetary Units.
