The Republic of The 99th Hurricane is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and absence of drug laws. The quiet, industrious population of 328 million 99th Hurricaneans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 19.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient 99th Hurricanean economy, worth 13.1 trillion Lightnings a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 39,929 Lightnings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

99th Hurricanean athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, home renovation shows are increasingly popular, endangered species are effective hostages against the 99th Hurricanean military, and men are expected to stay home to fix funny noises in the attic. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The 99th Hurricane's national animal is the Storm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The 99th Hurricane is ranked 128,395th in the world and 60th in Storage for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.2 percentage of bribes refused.
