The Total Peace of Halka II is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Tharn with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.846 billion Halkans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halka II City. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Halkan economy, worth 135 trillion Federation Credits a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 23,184 Federation Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The disabled are forced to undergo an MRI scan every time they pick up their benefit payments, courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Halkans, chess hooliganism is on the rise after the banning of organised sports, and students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Halka II's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Halka II is ranked 60,954th in the world and 32nd in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Smartest Citizens, with 38.74 quips per hour.
