The Kingdom of Hakketomat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jasan with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.065 billion Hakketomatians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palais d'Entreprise. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hakketomatian economy, worth a remarkable 3,517 trillion Hugs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 269,197 Hugs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,468,984 per year while the poor average 3,099, a ratio of 796 to 1.

More citizens have access to Maxtopian Grass than clean drinking water, hospitals have poor data security but send lots of bodies to be encrypted, mouldy bread is served as an appetizer in many restaurants, and the nation is relieved that all of the recent madness has finally come to an end. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hakketomat's national animal is the Koala, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hakketomat is ranked 867th in the world and 17th in 10000 Islands for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 268,928.57 Standard Monetary Units.
