The Greater Kingdom of Haederil is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Hannibal Wolnir IV with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.769 billion Haederilians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Artum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Haederilian economy, worth 328 trillion Arts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 185,483 Arts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 673,174 per year while the poor average 36,399, a ratio of 18.5 to 1.

The automobile industry is sitting up and taking notice of the new 24 hour race events... as are the track's sleepless neighbours, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, churches across the land are hurriedly installing auto-tune for their choirs, and 'Let's Get It On' has jumped to #1 on the billboard charts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haederil's national animal is the Lammergeier, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Skotism.

Haederil is ranked 111,759th in the world and 8th in The Independent States of Akrieus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 46.15 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
