The Sovereign Imperium of Machina Haruspex is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Ji'Mar with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.295 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 16,297 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, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, the statue in the Chandra Plaza has a solar panel for a hat, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, and sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour. 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 268th in the world and 2nd in Eurth for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 18,905.27 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
