The Sovereign Imperium of Machina Haruspex is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Empress Kira'Karn with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, parental licensing program, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 38.164 billion Harus have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chel de Yorn. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Machina Haruspexian economy, worth an astonishing 19,546 trillion Haru Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 512,179 Haru Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Royal princesses are recognizable by their plastic tiaras, Machina Haruspexian politicians are often described as having more style than substance, boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, and some say Empress Kira'Karn has gone MAD after authorizing the development of apocalyptic biological weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Machina Haruspex's national animal is the Tbe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Tyng Sudran.

Machina Haruspex is ranked 251,964th in the world and 237th in Eurth for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.54 bananas ingested per day.
