The Transcendent Domicile of Halliway is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.604 billion Halliwains 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 medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nargothrond. The average income tax rate is 63.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Halliwayian economy, worth a remarkable 1,076 trillion marks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,571 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, the government spends twice its healthcare budget on replacing stolen pens, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, and the state is footing the bill for billionaires' lawyers. Crime is totally unknown. Halliway's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Halliway is ranked 2,887th in the world and 117th in Lazarus for Rudest Citizens, with 186.44 Insults Per Minute.
