The Northern Island Empire of Haven and Sanctuary is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Ghara Hasran with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.194 billion Havenian and Sanctuarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capucara. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Havenian and Sanctuarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,557 trillion Supsios a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 299,852 Supsios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, Emperor Ghara Hasran's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, and the Haven and Sanctuary Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haven and Sanctuary's national animal is the Giant Sea Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Guardian faith and other religions.

Haven and Sanctuary is ranked 13,707th in the world and 206th in the Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 3,342 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
