The Happian Union of The Happian Union is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mr Mahn with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.283 billion Happish are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khangam. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Happish economy, worth 176 trillion đongers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 137,197 đongers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, Khangam's flashy holiday light displays can be seen from space, and farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Happian Union's national animal is the Generic Animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Late Partying on Friday night.

The Happian Union is ranked 123,463rd in the world and 4,641st in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.82 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
