The Republic of Hargue005 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.408 billion Hargue005ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.6%.
The powerhouse Hargue005ian economy, worth 179 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 74,350 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 216,026 per year while the poor average 20,252, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.
Drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, misbehaving Spiders deemed dangerous to the public are shot and hanged by the town hall as a warning to others, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Hargue005 in an international press conference. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hargue005's national animal is the Spider.
