The One Ring of Hope floats is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 19.154 billion Hope floatsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Hope floatsian economy, worth 226 trillion Rings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 11,850 Rings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vegetarianism is compulsory, pollsters are out of a job as elections have been cancelled, Hope floats has designated Hope floats City as its capital city, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Hope floats in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hope floats's national animal is the musquito, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ringism.

Hope floats is ranked 46,723rd in the world and 2nd in League Of Allied Powers for Lowest Crime Rates, with 70.42 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
