The Free Red Galactic Republic of Haivon is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Revolution Assembly with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.592 billion Haivonians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Perria. The average income tax rate is 89.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Haivonian economy, worth 212 trillion Raquios 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 133,559 Raquios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Haivon's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Meowsclephism.

Haivon is ranked 11,316th in the world and 189th in 10000 Islands for Healthiest Citizens, with 12.67 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
