The Galactic Paradise of Hassett is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by no one in particular with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 22.132 billion Hassettians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rack City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hassettian economy, worth a remarkable 5,994 trillion Nuka-Cola Caps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 270,867 Nuka-Cola Caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Listless juries are assembled for the simplest of court cases, bris parties are all the rage, the Hassettian Tourism Bureau has described the abolition of coastal defences as a "kick to the groyne", and robosexual marriages are increasingly common. 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. Hassett's national animal is the War Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is freedom of religion.

Hassett is ranked 59,757th in the world and 4th in Former United States for Most Pro-Market, scoring 52.33 on the Rand Index.
