The Unbearable Lightness of Hovertanks is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Academician Prokhor Zakharov with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 19.914 billion Hovertanksians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The medium-sized, moralistic, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Industry, with Spirituality, Defense, and Public Transport also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turtle Cove. The average income tax rate is 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hovertanksian economy, worth a remarkable 1,956 trillion gravitollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,236 gravitollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, the government is spending billions of taxpayer gravitollars to support the Tourism industry, and dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hovertanks's national animal is the supernaturally nimble turtle, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans, and its national religion is ignosticism.

Hovertanks is ranked 82,550th in the world and 27th in The Moon for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 145,399 Standard Monetary Units.
