The Kingdom of Havalland is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by His Royal Highness King Leon Wolf III with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 842 million Havallish are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingston. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.8%.

The thriving Havallish economy, worth 71.6 trillion Pieces a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 85,008 Pieces, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, and bike rage is all the rage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Havalland's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Havalland is ranked 21,637th in the world and 64th in The Western Isles for Most Cultured, scoring 82 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
