The The Crowned Republic of Halatia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Arias with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.36 billion Halatians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norwich. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.7%.

The very strong Halatian economy, worth 245 trillion Pennigs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,890 Pennigs, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with King Arias, Bears have more rights than the average citizen, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and war criminals are given full state funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Halatia's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Halatia is ranked 56,202nd in the world and 68th in Anteria for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,667.56 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
