The Sovereign Imperium of Machina Haruspex is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Empress Kira'Karn with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 34.342 billion Harus are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chel de Yorn. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Machina Haruspexian economy, worth an astonishing 17,540 trillion Haru Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 510,758 Haru Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,677,727 per year while the poor average 116,607, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

Interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBMH Governor goes house hunting, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Machina Haruspex, and the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Machina Haruspex's national animal is the Tbe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Tyng Sudran.

Machina Haruspex is ranked 668th in the world and 2nd in Eurth for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 16,375.98 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
