Location: the South Pacific

Regional Influence: Newcomer


The Republic of Hoekd is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 471 million Hoekdians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wubwala. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.7%.

The all-consuming Hoekdian economy, worth 52.6 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,614 florins, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

The blind lead the blind in social welfare, the internet has been placed under government control, it's surprisingly hard to find pictures of the bad haircuts from Leader's childhood, and all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hoekd's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Hoekd is ranked 9,620th in the world and 271st in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 81,813.34 Standard Monetary Units.
