The Empire of The Madder Hatter is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-working, cynical population of 13.472 billion Madder Hatterians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Social Policy, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.1%.

The very strong Madder Hatterian economy, worth 682 trillion Hatters a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 50,684 Hatters, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 158,744 per year while the poor average 12,406, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, military funding has been stripped back, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Madder Hatter's national animal is the rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Madder Hatter is ranked 131,106th in the world and 1st in Wonderland for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 189.6 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
