The Colony of Howlerd Islands is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.006 billion Howlerd Islanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fourth City. The average income tax rate is 33.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Howlerd Islandsian economy, worth 91.5 trillion dals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,959 dals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, opposition party MPs campaign shirtless to show off their numerous lash scars, and the dwindling faithful in the nation make expensive pilgrimages to the remaining places of worship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Howlerd Islands's national animal is the Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Howlerd Islands is ranked 56,319th in the world and 2,329th in Balder for Most Secular, with 23.75 Atheism Rate.
