The Andenian Monarchy of Haltari is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sol Metta with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.008 billion Haltarians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Talna. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Haltarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,366 trillion Haltars 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 181,926 Haltars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'Sparrownado 6: You Gotta Be Kidding Me' is this summer's top-grossing movie, the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, and political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haltari's national animal is the Sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Haltari is ranked 229,958th in the world and 106th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -11.63 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
