The Colony of Hogaw is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 395 million Hogawians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.0%.

The very strong Hogawian economy, worth 28.9 trillion Entroterranean Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 73,202 Entroterranean Lire, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 363,768 per year while the poor average 8,330, a ratio of 43.7 to 1.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, the term cold case has taken on a very literal meaning, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and home renovation shows are increasingly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hogaw's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hogaw is ranked 49,426th in the world and 6th in mutual cooperation alliance for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,000.72 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
