The United Kingdom of Haleai is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Omnipotent King Heath Legend with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed population of 4.098 billion Haleaians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haleai City. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Haleaian economy, worth a remarkable 1,003 trillion Hales 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 244,848 Hales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, many politicians are having to do a hard day's work for the first time in their careers, and Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haleai's national animal is the Three-Headed Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Haleai is ranked 144,663rd in the world and 6,309th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring -70.89 on the Rand Index.
