The Greater Realm of Souls of Haivon is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Everything with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.382 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 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Haivonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,698 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, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 266,100 Raquios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recognizing the Haivonian flag qualifies you for citizenship, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, and farting etiquette is taught in schools. Crime is totally unknown. Haivon's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Haivon is ranked 33,751st in the world and 292nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 5,511.16 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
