The Empire of Haens is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by HaenOne with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.418 billion Haens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cerion. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Haenisian economy, worth 322 trillion units a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,425 units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, HaenOne tells rebellious ministers to "drop and give me twenty", elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and the number of students attending university has reached a record high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haens's national animal is the Laceus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Haens is ranked 10,288th in the world and 3rd in The Wolf Legion for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 286.37 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
