The Supreme Confraternities of Independent Halls is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Professor BeeOhBee with a fair hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.72 billion Inditeses enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kalakuta. The average income tax rate is 16.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Independent Hallsian economy, worth 162 trillion Indies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Average income is 94,569 Indies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

There's more vermin than ever on the metro, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, and the entirety of Professor BeeOhBee's administration can be crammed into a phone booth. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Independent Halls's national animal is the Blue Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secret Confraternities.

Independent Halls is ranked 22,720th in the world and 1,181st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 72.83 on the Human Development Index.
