The Holy Empire of Haedlia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its parental licensing program, ban on automobiles, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.681 billion Haedlians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Spirituality, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Haedlian economy, worth a remarkable 7,574 trillion newcoins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 597,327 newcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,074,111 per year while the poor average 125,475, a ratio of 16.5 to 1.

Caroling is considered a public disturbance, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Haedlia's national animal is the yellow jacket, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Haedlia is ranked 82nd in the world and 3rd in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 64,453.08 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
