The Queen's State of Hayes Roadtrain is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 21.774 billion Hayes Roadtrainians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Welfare, although Healthcare and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The strong Hayes Roadtrainian economy, worth 949 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 43,588 betales, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, education and welfare spending are on the rise, the government is avowedly atheist, and all tariffs have been abolished. Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Hayes Roadtrain's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Hayes Roadtrain is ranked 165,116th in the world and 7th in Nauru for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -4.47 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
