The Dissociative State of Hardscrabble is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dr Norvak Dolokai with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.443 billion Hardscrabblers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Squash Flats. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Hardscrabblean economy, worth a remarkable 2,124 trillion gold florgons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 203,459 gold florgons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

For just a few extra gold florgons Hardscrabblers can get new driving records with their new cars, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and Dr Norvak Dolokai claims tax rises are the result of 'curses'. Crime is totally unknown. Hardscrabble's national animal is the wood shrew, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church Of Charismatic Numismatists.

Hardscrabble is ranked 2,282nd in the world and 143rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.49 on the Human Development Index.
