The Democratic Republic of CONFEDERATION OF HALANDIA is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by MORGAN HENDRICKS with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and anti-smoking policies.

Average income is an amazing 216,261 BLUE NOTES, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, where there's a will there is usually a password manager, and stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CONFEDERATION OF HALANDIA's national animal is the CAT, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

CONFEDERATION OF HALANDIA is ranked 202,386th in the world and 7,423rd in Osiris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -16.73 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
