The Democratic Republic of Hatstheput is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.013 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, with Industry also on the agenda, 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 629 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 163,761st in the world and 276th in Anteria for Most Income Equality, scoring 1.98 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
