The Static on the Radio of Haku is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Haku with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords and suspicion of poets. The hard-working population of 6.755 billion Hakuans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spirit Realm. The average income tax rate is 21.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Hakuan economy, worth 273 trillion Yen a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,472 Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Hakuan husbands are dead good at fathering kids, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haku's national animal is the Dragon and its national religion is Shinto.

Haku is ranked 164,597th in the world and 161st in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Largest Governments, scoring 9.54 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
