The Pharaoh Eternal of Hatshepsut is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Hatshepsut with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.208 billion Hatshepsutians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Memphis. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hatshepsutian economy, worth 309 trillion silver rings a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,062 silver rings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens sporting mohawks must carry family trees on them at all times, the nation is automatically assumed to be the source of all unmarked weapons, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, and lending money has become a major liability. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hatshepsut's national animal is the Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Coptic.

Hatshepsut is ranked 9,029th in the world and 1st in Egypt for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,966.45 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
