The Federal Republic of Halivaara is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.858 billion Halivaarans 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Yakutia. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Halivaaran economy, worth 386 trillion Corbeaus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 135,245 Corbeaus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Halivaara's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Halivaara is ranked 162,493rd in the world and 7,522nd in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 27.36 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
