Location: The North Pacific



Population11.646 billion



The Kingdom of SirHardHead is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.646 billion SirHardHeadians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Smiles. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient SirHardHeadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,719 trillion Shlongs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 147,636 Shlongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, and only adults may purchase violent video games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SirHardHead's national animal is the Donkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

SirHardHead is ranked 2,818th in the world and 147th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.8 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
