The Democratic Republic of CONFEDERATION OF HALANDIA is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by MORGAN HENDRICKS with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.866 billion HALANDIans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HENDRIKSTON. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient CONFEDERATION OF HALANDIAian economy, worth a remarkable 2,349 trillion BLUE NOTES a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 1,743rd in the world and 76th in Balder for Highest Poor Incomes, with 178,306.44 Standard Monetary Units.
