Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Squire


The Dissociative State of Hardscrabble is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Dr Norvak Dolokai with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.111 billion Hardscrabblers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Squash Flats. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Hardscrabblean economy, worth a remarkable 3,171 trillion gold florgons a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 241,865 gold florgons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation rates have hit a new low, foreign envoys that want to visit Hardscrabble now have to navigate real minefields in addition to the political ones, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time. Crime is totally unknown. Hardscrabble's national animal is the wood shrew, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church Of Charismatic Numismatists.

Hardscrabble is ranked 243,443rd in the world and 10,161st in The North Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
