The Republic of Halander is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dylan Vega with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.602 billion Halanderians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Santos. The average income tax rate is 86.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Halanderian economy, worth 128 trillion Halis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 80,352 Halis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, and billions of Halis are spent to take high-quality photos of the Lion Nebula. Crime is totally unknown. Halander's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Halander is ranked 152,703rd in the world and 6,379th in the South Pacific for Most Devout, with 5.17 Prayers Per Hour.
