The Classy Realm of Half-Milers is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 14.174 billion Half-Milersians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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.

Companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, euthanasia is legal, anti-government web sites are springing up, and the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor. 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 57th in Wysteria and 4,863rd in the world for Largest Populations, with 14,174 Capita (millions).
