The Holy Empire of Haret is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chosen One with an iron fist, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, parental licensing program, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.901 billion Haretians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradise Gate. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Haretian economy, worth a remarkable 4,541 trillion Blessings a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 304,808 Blessings, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,256,162 per year while the poor average 48,695, a ratio of 25.8 to 1.

School lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, groups of three or more trees are cut down in the name of 'child safety', when shaking hands with foreign leaders Chosen One wears an armoured gauntlet, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Haret's national animal is the Griffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is High Truth.

Haret is ranked 55,372nd in the world and 11th in Autropolis for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 3,009.57 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
