The Democratic Allegiance of Hazelonia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Eminently Reasonable Pompositor with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate population of 8.707 billion Hazelonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Beelzeburg. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hazelonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,017 trillion basils a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 116,890 basils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, many friends and relatives of The Eminently Reasonable Pompositor have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and treason is relative. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hazelonia's national animal is the ostrich, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hazelonia is ranked 167,780th in the world and 295th in Forest for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.1 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
