The Agrarian Distributist State of Havilland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by First Alderman Hjalmar Kjærsgaard with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.914 billion Havillanders are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, with Administration, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Havilland-Presper Park. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Havillan economy, worth a remarkable 2,224 trillion hursts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 186,730 hursts, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, many in Havilland are born in the purple, people are bored of easy crossword puzzles, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. Crime is totally unknown. Havilland's national animal is the snipe, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Havilland is ranked 62,306th in the world and 35th in Right to Life for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,356.01 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
