The Kingdom of Havalland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Leon Wolf III with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 3.015 billion Havallishmen are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingston. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Havallish economy, worth 256 trillion Fers a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,045 Fers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students do more community service than homework, surveillance cameras are banned, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Havalland's national animal is the Havallish Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Frauism.

Havalland is ranked 208,355th in the world and 161st in The Western Isles for Rudest Citizens, with 17.75 Insults Per Minute.
