The Holy Empire of Haedlia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its closed borders, complete lack of prisons, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.567 billion Haedlians 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Haedlian economy, worth an astonishing 10,906 trillion newcoins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 700,629 newcoins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,816,947 per year while the poor average 65,996, a ratio of 57.8 to 1.

Nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that she is in fact a crook after all, Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls, and police regularly arrest families playing Monopoly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Haedlia's national animal is the yellow jacket, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Haedlia is ranked 17th in the world and 1st in the West Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 31,169.32 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
