LeaderPresident Lee Yichun


The United States of Haetonia is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Lee Yichun with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 876 million Haetonians 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.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yarataga. The average income tax rate is 52.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Haetonian economy, worth 55.7 trillion cheons a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,614 cheons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

East Lebatuckese luxury goods are plundered by the working class of Haetonia, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', and President Lee Yichun has just been declared ruler of Haetonia in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haetonia's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Haetonia is ranked 145,988th in the world and 3,173rd in the West Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -2 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
