The Confederacy of Halbhalbha is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Anne R Kist with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 7.373 billion Halbians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halbhalbha City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Halbhalbhan economy, worth a remarkable 2,318 trillion halbs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 314,506 halbs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,765,143 per year while the poor average 27,747, a ratio of 63.6 to 1.

Major boxing matches are held in government buildings, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, and package deals offer tourists the chance to visit the frozen remains of the previous tour group. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Halbhalbha's national animal is the robot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Halbhalbha is ranked 291st in the world and 7th in the Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 689.88 on the Hayek Index.
