The Holy Empire of Haedlia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.192 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, Law & Order, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Haedlian economy, worth an astonishing 11,539 trillion newcoins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is a breathtaking 712,668 newcoins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,884,992 per year while the poor average 37,347, a ratio of 130 to 1.

It is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, the police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls, amusement park rides frequently collapse due to lack of maintenance, and Haedlia City has become the number one destination for urban exploration in the West Pacific. 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 230,424th in the world and 6,149th in the West Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2 Tourists Per Hour.
