The Dominion of Hapilopper is a massive, genial nation, ruled by William Mathis with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.708 billion Hapiloppians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hapilopper City. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hapiloppian economy, worth 451 trillion dollars 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 166,808 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, Air Hapilopper is rumored to receive more government funding than the Hapiloppian Air Force, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hapilopper's national animal is the long-tailed thrasher, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hapilopper is ranked 2,990th in the world and 8th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 63.33 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
