Regional Influence: Minnow

Location: The North Pacific



Population13.453 billion


The Empire of Hond is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.453 billion Hondians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Social Policy, Defense, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.6%.

The strong Hondian economy, worth 557 trillion Franks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 41,434 Franks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 401,737 per year while the poor average 206, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem. Hond's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hond is ranked 63,700th in the world and 3,389th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,142.97 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
