The Classy Realm of Half-Milers is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.25 billion Half-Milersians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Half-Milersian economy, worth a remarkable 7,912 trillion buge hoobs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 372,346 buge hoobs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Students cut up leftover buge hoobs during Arts and Crafts, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, and Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament. Crime is totally unknown. Half-Milers's national animal is the Big Red, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Half-Milers is ranked 120,119th in the world and 68th in Wysteria for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.07 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
