The Celtic Matriarchy of Hallorland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Saoirse O'Halloran with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 3.223 billion Hallorians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaelcaisléan. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hallorian economy, worth 584 trillion Halers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 181,364 Halers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Rumor has it that Saoirse O'Halloran has won three lotteries in a row, Saoirse O'Halloran claims tax rises are the result of 'curses', troops are either deafened by gunfire or a hysterical voice screaming the Party manifesto, and radiation is a hot topic. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hallorland's national animal is the Red Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Celtic Paganism.

Hallorland is ranked 144,710th in the world and 1,005th in Europe for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 649.55 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
