The Emirate of Hasonia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 5.131 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 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 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hasonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,071 trillion Kötels a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 208,762 Kötels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, Big Agriculture has the government by the nuts, and search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hasonia's national animal is the Sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hasonia is ranked 55,728th in the world and 311th in 10000 Islands for Largest Populations, with 5.13 billion Capita.
