The Sovereign Imperium of Machina Haruspex is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Ji'Mar with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, flagrant waste-dumping, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.27 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 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 16,285 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 504,660 Haru Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,426,553 per year while the poor average 142,833, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

The government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, children keel over while singing "Emperor Ji'Mar Gives Us the Water of Life", police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and the national policy on terrorism is "forgive and forget". 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 3,213th in the world and 5th in Eurth for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 20,251.38 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
