The Community of Hatakulamatakatak is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tamaka Kariknokerat Krhonhrak with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, digital currency, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.952 billion Hatakulamatakatakians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokuliratikulak. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hatakulamatakatakian economy, worth 244 trillion Hatakudollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 125,433 Hatakudollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, and the "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches. Crime is totally unknown. Hatakulamatakatak's national animal is the manbearpig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is tkqcgaeism.

Hatakulamatakatak is ranked 138,520th in the world and 7,499th in Chicken overlords for Fattest Citizens, with 9.49 Obesity Rate.
