The Republic of The Haven Land is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 342 million Havenians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haven City. The average income tax rate is 61.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Havenian economy, worth 16.1 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 47,061 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-euro treacle machine, the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, and extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Haven Land's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Haven Land is ranked 215,243rd in the world and 1,150th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.4 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
