The Democrat Capitalist Republic of Independent Halls is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Professor BeeOhBee with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.991 billion Inditeses 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 Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kalakuta. The average income tax rate is 32.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Independent Hallsian economy, worth 542 trillion Indies a year, is led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 108,718 Indies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, Max Barry is this year's Miss Independent Halls, many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Independent Halls's national animal is the Blue Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Independent Halls is ranked 239,250th in the world and 9,049th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.14 Weapons Per Person.
