Location: St Abbaddon

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The State of Hard Coast is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Queen Elizabeth with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 3.368 billion Hard Coastians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperi Hard Coast. The average income tax rate is 55.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Hard Coastian economy, worth 144 trillion Dragoons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,008 Dragoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's not just poseurs who wear oversized sound-cancelling headphones as they walk the city streets, Chancellor Queen Elizabeth is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, prison officers are bribed not to take bribes, and the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hard Coast's national animal is the Iron Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Protestant.

Hard Coast is ranked 172,967th in the world and 105th in St Abbaddon for Best Weather, with 98 Meters Of Sunlight.
