The Kingdom of Halistat is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ryan Tucker with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.228 billion Halistatians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostforthe. The average income tax rate is 45.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Halistatian economy, worth a remarkable 1,212 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 232,004 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Halistat's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Halistat is ranked 127,593rd in the world and 4,565th in Osiris for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 236.87 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
