Location: Founderless

Regional Influence: Vassal


The Sultanate of Hookah Castle is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, flagrant waste-dumping, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 461 million Hookah Castleans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chaotic Evil. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.5%.

The all-consuming Hookah Castlean economy, worth 47.1 trillion Tobaccos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 102,168 Tobaccos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 302,882 per year while the poor average 27,052, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

The richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, education and welfare spending are on the rise, Hookah Castle's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, and owners of man-portable particle accelerator backpacks are advised not to cross the streams. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Hookah Castle's national animal is the Alligator.

Hookah Castle is ranked 212,957th in the world and 62nd in Founderless for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -7.48 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
