The Nomadic Peoples of Featured Hopper is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 377 million Featured Hopperians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.6%.

The powerhouse Featured Hopperian economy, worth 33.9 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,884 guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 291,433 per year while the poor average 20,918, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas", and Leader is considering changing the Featured Hopperian flag to one with more glitter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Featured Hopper's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Featured Hopper is ranked 185,812th in the world and 95th in Japan for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3.7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
