The Foral Republic of Hatstheput is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.057 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, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hatstheput City. The average income tax rate is 3.0%.

The all-consuming Hatstheputian economy, worth 996 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, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 123,681 Quasas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Lonely people are supposed to be cheered up by the many parties that they are never invited to, getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Hatstheput, the debts of the father fall upon the son, and the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, 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.

Hatstheput is ranked 162,929th in the world and 277th in Anteria for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 49.01 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
