The Space Empire of Zaberaz Hapang is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Aka with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, aversion to nipples, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.03 billion Hapangians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Campton. The average income tax rate is 16.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Hapangian economy, worth 429 trillion Galactic Shenes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 211,647 Galactic Shenes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, Queen Aka can't hear a thing when the unwashed masses throw rocks at the new state limousine, and promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zaberaz Hapang's national animal is the Black Beak Penguin.

Zaberaz Hapang is ranked 115,990th in the world and 778th in 10000 Islands for Most Beautiful Environments, with 531.59 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
