The Syndicate of Hayden Island is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 19.712 billion Hayden Islandians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Social Welfare, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Portland. The average income tax rate is 87%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, armed police units patrol the roads late at night, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, and postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hayden Island's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Credit.

Hayden Island is ranked 1,043rd in 10000 Islands and 121,662nd in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -22 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
