The Superior Dictatorship of New Hanktopia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emporer Hank with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, aversion to nipples, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.531 billion Hanktopians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel of New Hanktopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Hanktopian economy, worth 201 trillion Tons of diamond a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 131,895 Tons of diamond, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 631,775 per year while the poor average 16,113, a ratio of 39.2 to 1.

The legal system for the political class is completely separate from the one for normal citizens, foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, unemployed youngsters trained to kill are being released en masse into society, and posters encourage people to "Just Do It!". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. New Hanktopia's national animal is the Tardigrade, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Do-What-Glorious-Leader-Tells-You-ism.

New Hanktopia is ranked 26,637th in the world and 1,410th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,274.67 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
