The Democratic Space Empire of Zaberaz Hapang is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 791 million Hapangians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Campton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Hapangian economy, worth 112 trillion Shenes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 141,989 Shenes, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, foreigners must sell an arm and a leg to afford surgery in Zaberaz Hapang, and Leader's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zaberaz Hapang's national animal is the Black Beak Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Zaberaz Hapang is ranked 25,250th in the world and 187th in 10000 Islands for Rudest Citizens, with 96.28 Insults Per Minute.
