The Empire of Larenia-Haberny is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 659 million Larenia-Habernyians 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 medium-sized, 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 Vientra. The average income tax rate is 39.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Larenia-Habernyian economy, worth 29.8 trillion Shelks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,145 Shelks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, the government has become increasingly militant, the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons, and the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Larenia-Haberny's national animal is the Double Headed Bird, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Larenia-Haberny is ranked 147,711th in the world and 8,185th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.54 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
