The Unexplained Phenomenon of Hurdergaryp is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Staatshoofd with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.643 billion Hurdergarypians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kjeld. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hurdergarypian economy, worth a remarkable 1,158 trillion florijns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 134,066 florijns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, autocrats are persona non grata, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hurdergaryp's national animal is the koningspoedel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hurdergaryp is ranked 4,899th in the world and 70th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.13 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
