use of "haven't"

Hello,

I've come across this sentence: "In sitting here, I haven't a care in the world."

I understand that the person is saying that s/he has nothing to worry about. Although, why does s/he say "haven't" instead of "don't have"?

I've already seen the use of "haven't" like this. Is it informal?



Thank you so much.



Best wishes.
