The Sovereign Imperium of Machina Haruspex is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Sa Karn with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.381 billion Harus are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, 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 15,817 trillion Haru Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 504,060 Haru Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,610,905 per year while the poor average 119,815, a ratio of 13.4 to 1.

The nation is loathed abroad for dumping all of its waste in international waters, dessert dishes make up the Machina Haruspexian breakfast menu, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. 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 170,865th in the world and 103rd in Eurth for Least Corrupt Governments, with 2.03 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
