The Matriarchy of Hathoratrix is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Brienne of Tarth with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.931 billion Hathoratrixians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Simon le Bonneville. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Hathoratrixian economy, worth a remarkable 1,311 trillion Hesters a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 69,279 Hesters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, Brienne of Tarth is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hathoratrix's national animal is the Black Domestic Shorhair, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hathoratrix is ranked 201,256th in the world and 382nd in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -17.41 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
