The Objectivist Republic of Haigford is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Samuel Taylor with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.323 billion Haigfordians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reagan City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Haigfordian economy, worth a remarkable 3,220 trillion gold standards a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 151,035 gold standards, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 779,251 per year while the poor average 15,946, a ratio of 48.9 to 1.

Postcards from Haigfordian driving test centres are popular souvenirs, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, and stage mothers commonly give their children the nickname 'Cash'. Crime is totally unknown. Haigford's national animal is the bald eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is a major religion.

Haigford is ranked 3,108th in the world and 3rd in Union of Free Nations for Fattest Citizens, with 32.21 Obesity Rate.
