CapitalHamronica City


The Empire of Hamronica is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 22.18 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, although Education is also considered important, 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 7,762 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 349,958 wargs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

In a fit of passion Leader has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, the national anthem's only purpose is to inflate Leader's ever-expanding ego, the sparkling rainbow has become a symbol of far-right extremism, and courtrooms can be a little sketchy. 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 240th in the world and 5th in the South Pacific for Most Armed, with 41.75 Weapons Per Person.
