The Holy Empire of Haedlia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.369 billion Haedlians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Haedlian economy, worth an astonishing 10,649 trillion newcoins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 692,906 newcoins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,260,610 per year while the poor average 49,181, a ratio of 86.6 to 1.

Research into 'designer babies' is banned, nursing mothers are often arrested for indecent exposure, Haedlian watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Haedlia's national animal is the yellow jacket, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Haedlia is ranked 48,648th in the world and 1,438th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 60.22 on the Rand Index.
