Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Squire


The Dissociative State of Hardscrabble is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dr Norvak Dolokai with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.455 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 prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Squash Flats. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Hardscrabblean economy, worth a remarkable 2,132 trillion gold florgons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 203,939 gold florgons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

All the world's a stage for Hardscrabblean political theatrics, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, and the name of the "Butcher of Bigtopia" adorns shirts across Hardscrabble. 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 7,683rd in the world and 233rd in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 2,132 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
