The Compassionate Republic of Headpat Central is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.387 billion Headpat Centralians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Headpat City. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Headpat Centralian economy, worth a remarkable 1,453 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 227,558 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Headpat Central's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Headpat Central is ranked 436th in the world and 12th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 98.88 on the Human Development Index.
