The Classy Realm of Half-Milers is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 13.872 billion Half-Milersians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The capital of Half-Milers has burned to the ground and caused riots throughout the country, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. Crime is totally unknown. Half-Milers's national animal is the Big Red, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the buge hoobs.

Half-Milers is ranked 31st in Wysteria and 8,264th in the world for Safest, scoring 382.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
