The Empire of HASTINAPURI is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 1.317 billion HASTINAPURIians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 63.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong HASTINAPURIian economy, worth 71.4 trillion hastis a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 54,219 hastis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HASTINAPURI's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

HASTINAPURI is ranked 72,358th in the world and 45th in Philippines for Most Income Equality, scoring 49.93 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
