The Kingdom of Hakketomat is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jasan with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.531 billion Hakketomatians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palais d'Entreprise. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hakketomatian economy, worth a remarkable 3,759 trillion Hugs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 277,857 Hugs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,552,055 per year while the poor average 3,150, a ratio of 809 to 1.

Eight-year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, the Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Jasan Pics" has made Jasan's mom a celebrity, vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, and college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hakketomat's national animal is the Koala, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hakketomat is ranked 20,167th in the world and 143rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Populations, with 13.5 billion Capita.
