The Grand Republic of Havenwelle is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Kevin Burke with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.908 billion Havenwelleans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Haven. The average income tax rate is 40.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Havenwellean economy, worth a remarkable 2,113 trillion Havs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 193,801 Havs, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Business is adjusting to new gender equality policies in the workplace, there is a 'turn around' sign at every border entrance, colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, and pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Havenwelle's national animal is the Brittany Spaniel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of Havenwelle.

Havenwelle is ranked 208,093rd in the world and 1,181st in Europeia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 4.95 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
