The Republic of Hyphen is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nicodemius with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.574 billion Hyphenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capolity. The average income tax rate is 54.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hyphenian economy, worth 134 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 85,232 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, you're only as old as you feel, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, and island residents must resort to canoes and sailboats to get to work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hyphen's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Hyphen is ranked 158,082nd in the world and 6,828th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -100.5 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
