The United Socialist States of Hwachan is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.187 billion Hwachanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lego City. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hwachanian economy, worth 172 trillion Hwachas 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 145,609 Hwachas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, Lego City spends billions upgrading public transport, and motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hwachan's national animal is the Tardigrade, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hwachan is ranked 7,036th in the world and 98th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.73 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
