The Kingdom of Hawkmouth is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, vat-grown people, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 824 million Hawkmouthians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Subterrus. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hawkmouthian economy, worth 150 trillion rosks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 182,887 rosks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

There's a bright dawn ahead for Hawkmouth, former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", and trouble-makers are frequently turned in to the government to be 'recycled'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hawkmouth's national animal is the Polar Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hawkmouth is ranked 11,741st in the world and 63rd in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Lowest Crime Rates, with 90.05 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
