I've got to admit that I'm a bit disappointed to find that my hammock wasn't made in Canada, then again not much else is these days. However I'm happy with the product and I can only hope that Hennessy is getting its product from a respectable source. China is growing and quickly modernising. There are 2 billion people there and I'm sure that the vast majority are great people. I don't want to get into some of its governmental policies as its far too upsetting. Hopefully with growing prosperity a new enlightenment will blossom....hmmm...but they say money corrupts...dang it...I wanted a happy ending to this reply..

I suppose we've spent enough time about the moral issue of Canadian hammocks assembled in China. Now, as to 'slave livlihood'[sic]...
I think Claytors are made in Thailand. I know someone said that you order the Clayotr No Net from Thailand.

I think with Hennessy it depends on the model. The Expedition is definitely made in China, and the military models are made in USA per the site, I couldn't find info about the others (Canada?).
After contacting several companies, looking up info on the websites, and recieving input from several people here, I have compiled this list of hammock companies, and the country of origin of their products:
Byer--Brazil and China http://www.byerofmaine.com/amazonas.htm
--Cotton hammocks w/o spreader bars are Brazilian. Travel style hammocks and cotton hammocks with a spreader bar are Chinese

Here is a thread I started about this list, as it applies to more companies than just Hennessey:
