The Corporonation of Hexalot is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Hexav Atrophos Lent with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, vat-grown people, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.869 billion Hexalotians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Graceville. The average income tax rate is 18.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hexalotian economy, worth a remarkable 9,821 trillion demis a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 340,201 demis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Hexalotian satellites can detect it, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and the nation is automatically assumed to be the source of all unmarked weapons. Crime is totally unknown. Hexalot's national animal is the cerberus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hexalot is ranked 138,952nd in the world and 4,302nd in the Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 18.21 Effective Tax Rate.
