The Holy Empire of Haedlia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.819 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, with Industry, Law & Order, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Haedlian economy, worth an astonishing 11,227 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 709,773 newcoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,320,549 per year while the poor average 90,634, a ratio of 36.6 to 1.

No one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, an enormous health awareness programme is underway, and chrome-clad space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on. 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 2,535th in the world and 48th in the West Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 11,363.79 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
