The Happian Union of The Happian Union is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mr Mahn with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.988 billion Happish are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khangam. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Happish economy, worth 274 trillion đongers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 138,006 đongers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, and the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Happian Union's national animal is the Generic Animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Late Partying on Friday night.

The Happian Union is ranked 9,631st in the world and 227th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,615.03 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
