The Confederacy of Halbhalbha is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Anne R Kist with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.747 billion Halbians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halbhalbha City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Halbhalbhan economy, worth a remarkable 2,832 trillion halbs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 323,786 halbs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,805,108 per year while the poor average 28,995, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.

Adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, Anne R Kist's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, and biological warfare is used to solve small disagreements. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Halbhalbha's national animal is the robot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Halbhalbha is ranked 239,904th in the world and 6,046th in the Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 39.61 on the Human Development Index.
