|Leader||Dr Norvak Dolokai|
The Dissociative State of Hardscrabble is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Dr Norvak Dolokai with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.775 billion Hardscrabbleans 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, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Squash Flats. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Hardscrabblean economy, worth a remarkable 1,452 trillion florgons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 165,559 florgons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, gun-wielding gangsters sometimes deal death from as far as ten paces away, and signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars. Crime is totally unknown. Hardscrabble's national animal is the wood shrew, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
