OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Classy Realm of Half-Milers is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, notable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.662 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.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, the government is avowedly atheist, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. 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 4th in Wysteria and 29th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 605 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
