Hamsters live and work in Hamsterland, a perfect state with a perfect economy. Its GDP grows steadily, there is no unemployment, and its entire population claims to be happy. Of course, just as any attempt to arrange a perfect society by force, the world of hamsters also has its dark side, which we gradually discover during the film.
