The Protectorate of Independent Halls is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Professor BeeOhBee with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 868 million Inditeses enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maracana. The average income tax rate is 9.5%.

The strong Independent Hallsian economy, worth 54.3 trillion Indies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 62,608 Indies, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Meals are now followed by thirty minutes of mandatory exercise, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, and military units are often seen arguing over which one is truly favored by the gods. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Independent Halls's national animal is the Blue Leopard.

Independent Halls is ranked 30,334th in the world and 1,651st in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 102.66 on the Hayek Index.
