The Expressionist Commonwealth of Haivon is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Wideren with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.622 billion Haivonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Perria. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Haivonian economy, worth 711 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 196,322 Raquios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Haivon, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning, and dining out often involves Platypuses on the plate no matter what you order. Crime is totally unknown. Haivon's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Haivon is ranked 2,196th in the world and 52nd in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 97.58 on the Human Development Index.
