The United Clans of Honourbound is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Gharkost Sero with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 6.952 billion Honourbound 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 Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serane. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Honourbound economy, worth a remarkable 1,641 trillion veruses 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 and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 236,157 veruses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, and tax rises are attributed to divine will. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Honourbound's national animal is the Thunderbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Honourbound is ranked 4,324th in the world and 112th in the Pacific for Safest, scoring 133.18 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
