The Transcendent Domicile of Halliway is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.253 billion Halliwains 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 medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nargothrond. The average income tax rate is 47.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Halliwayian economy, worth 759 trillion marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 144,537 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime is totally unknown. Halliway's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Halliway is ranked 28,264th in the world and 1,658th in Lazarus for Longest Average Lifespans, with 69.33 Years.
