The Ghosts of Heizento is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 11.374 billion Ghosts 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 juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Ghost economy, worth 180 trillion Haunts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 15,862 Haunts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Heizento's national animal is the Phantom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Heizento is ranked 38,682nd in the world and 1st in The Conservative Nations for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
