The Golden Peacelands of Hagston is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Tim Galek with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.709 billion Hagstonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyhnberk. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hagstonian economy, worth 367 trillion Hagstones a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,059 Hagstones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, third world countries are rich in "I Love Lyhnberk" t-shirts, and politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets. Crime is totally unknown. Hagston's national animal is the Willie Wagtail, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hagstonian Trust.

Hagston is ranked 20,293rd in the world and 2nd in Laraniem for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.91 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
