The Free Red Galactic Republic of Haivon is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Revolution Assembly with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.597 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 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Haivonian economy, worth 213 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 133,674 Raquios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. 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 Gnomism.

Haivon is ranked 211,867th in the world and 2,410th in 10000 Islands for Most Devout, with 3.8 Prayers Per Hour.
