The Techno-Induscracy of Haishan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sashan Vidin with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 23.294 billion Haize 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Icturk City. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Haize economy, worth an astonishing 11,336 trillion hikans a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 486,670 hikans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The well-to-do in Greater Dienstad are never on time for important appointments, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, calisthenics is a well-known tax-dodging technique, and the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haishan's national animal is the crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Haishan is ranked 166,592nd in the world and 42nd in Greater Dienstad for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.15 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
