The Free Red Galactic Republic of Haivon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Revolution Assembly with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.555 billion Haivonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Perria. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Haivonian economy, worth 207 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 133,334 Raquios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The HBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, the Haivonian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Haivon's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Meowsclephism.

Haivon is ranked 7,354th in the world and 110th in 10000 Islands for Highest Poor Incomes, with 111,812.47 Standard Monetary Units.
