The Free Land of Havringa is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 791 million Havringans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Müden-an-der-Havringan. The average income tax rate is 4.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Havringan economy, worth 51.3 trillion Havringers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 64,876 Havringers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
