The Holy Empire of Haedlia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, avowedly heterosexual populace, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.787 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, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Haedlian economy, worth an astonishing 12,345 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 735,438 newcoins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,961,421 per year while the poor average 70,982, a ratio of 55.8 to 1.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', concussed yellow jacketball players cannot remember their lineup position, there is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Haedlian military, and just as students finish their homework it's time for school. 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 219,420th in the world and 5,235th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 166.6 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
