The Republic of Havonosa is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 496 million Havonosans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quire. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.8%.

The very strong Havonosan economy, worth 32.3 trillion Rubleses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 65,169 Rubleses, with the richest citizens earning 9.0 times as much as the poorest.

The entire entry for Havonosa in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, the police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, and lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Havonosa's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Havonosa is ranked 50,928th in the world and 1,638th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 44.22 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
