The Most Serene Republic of Hajima is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Countess Litchi von Chinensis with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, soft-spoken computers, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 19.362 billion Hajimen have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soapberry. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The strong Hajiman economy, worth a remarkable 2,287 trillion Indigo Silvers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 118,161 Indigo Silvers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, there is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Hajiman grocery store, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hajima's national animal is the Iridescent Short-Haired Lychee, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hajima is ranked 29,578th in the world and 1,591st in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 74.42 on the Human Development Index.
