|Leader||Dr Norvak Dolokai|
The Dissociative State of Hardscrabble is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dr Norvak Dolokai with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.987 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 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 95.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Hardscrabblean economy, worth a remarkable 1,109 trillion florgons a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 158,773 florgons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", there's more vermin than ever on the metro, on-duty Air Hardscrabble flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime is totally unknown. Hardscrabble's national animal is the wood shrew, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
