The Emirate of Hasonia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 3.722 billion Hasonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hasonia City. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hasonian economy, worth 730 trillion Kötels a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 196,140 Kötels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Calling out of the blue has become taboo, coconut-half banging former royals skip around the countryside seeking gullible peasants to rule, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and bizarre-looking creatures called 'Slothdogs' dominate wildlife preserves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hasonia's national animal is the Sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hasonia is ranked 201,556th in the world and 1,182nd in 10000 Islands for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -74.44 on the Hayek Index.
