The Northern Island Empire of Haven and Sanctuary is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Ghara Hasran with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.228 billion Havenian and Sanctuarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capucara. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Havenian and Sanctuarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,571 trillion Supsios a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 300,523 Supsios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Too many developers spoil the codebase, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haven and Sanctuary's national animal is the Giant Sea Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Guardian faith and other religions.

Haven and Sanctuary is ranked 93,950th in the world and 3,320th in the Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 156.55 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
