The Classy Realm of Half-Milers is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 13.836 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.

Pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. 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 616 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
