The Kingdom of Halistat is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ryan Tucker with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.501 billion Halistatians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostforthe. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Halistatian economy, worth 684 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 195,374 dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,022,734 per year while the poor average 20,023, a ratio of 51.1 to 1.

The national security service are a bunch of crooks, every noble family has a 'personal file' on record courtesy of the central intelligence service, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. 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 Atheisism.

Halistat is ranked 19,686th in the world and 761st in Osiris for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,002.2 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
