The Kingdom of Hospe is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Jeffrey with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The quiet, industrious population of 7.85 billion Hospeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mirus. The average income tax rate is 55.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hospean economy, worth a remarkable 1,027 trillion Hospean Nairas a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 130,882 Hospean Nairas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, Violetist maidens who fall for an outsider must leave their violet light districts in shame, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hospe's national animal is the Black panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hospe is ranked 249,470th in the world and 11th in Oatland for Most Primitive, scoring -105.5 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
