The Stratocracy of Havia Sysis is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Adolphus Quintus with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 848 million Sysisians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hive-01. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Havia Sysisian economy, worth 115 trillion Kovals a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,465 Kovals, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Havia Sysis's national animal is the Souls of the Damned, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Havia Sysis is ranked 171,483rd in the world and 237th in The Black Hawks for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 284.17 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
