The People's Republic of Habanan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sparax Epolonius Jr with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, disturbing lack of elderly people, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.568 billion Habananians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kazumri. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Habananian economy, worth 812 trillion Haban dollars 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 significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 177,773 Haban dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', and a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Habanan's national animal is the Habanan Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lord Sparax Epolonius.

Habanan is ranked 147,547th in the world and 7,581st in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 23.62 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
