The Sovereign Imperium of Machina Haruspex is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Empress Kira'Karn with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 33.828 billion Harus are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Machina Haruspexian economy, worth an astonishing 17,265 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 510,383 Haru Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,676,496 per year while the poor average 116,522, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

The government is purchasing vast amounts of palm oil for plastics production, whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, military officials are questioning the policy of ceding the nation's territory in exchange for promises not to invade it, and things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. 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 40,872nd in the world and 20th in Eurth for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 4,355.39 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
