The Empire of Hamronica is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 23.666 billion Hamronicans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Public Transport receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hamronica City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hamronican economy, worth a remarkable 8,286 trillion wargs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 350,153 wargs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Corruption is a game of two halves, most people learn to drive on crash courses, childhood friends of Leader are living it large abroad at the taxpayers' expense, and the police have been reduced to using duct tape instead of handcuffs following further cutbacks. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hamronica's national animal is the animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hamronica is ranked 169th in the world and 8th in the South Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 129.72 Crimes Per Hour.
