The Principality of Haldir is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by constant viglance with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, cynical population of 15.926 billion Haldirians 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 relatively small, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, although Law & Order and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cerin Amroth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.8%.

The thriving Haldirian economy, worth 578 trillion blindfolds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 36,317 blindfolds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 110,941 per year while the poor average 9,214, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Haldir has designated Cerin Amroth as its capital city, the government funds large training centres to turn dwarfs into functioning members of society, and constant viglance has just been declared ruler of Haldir in an international press conference. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Haldir's national animal is the dwarf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Haldir is ranked 101,694th in the world and 4th in Lothlorien for Most Developed, scoring 56.66 on the Human Development Index.
