The Military State of Haivon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by General De-Tierra with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.996 billion Haivonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tau Ceti City. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Haivonian economy, worth 287 trillion Raquios a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 143,951 Raquios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods. Crime is totally unknown. Haivon's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Haivon is ranked 97,961st in the world and 842nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 915.16 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
