Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Haven of Harcness is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Denzel with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.777 billion Harcnessians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Social Policy, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asphixter. The average income tax rate is 7.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Harcnessian economy, worth a remarkable 1,323 trillion Twiles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 135,331 Twiles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, and re-education centers are being added to most prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Harcness's national animal is the Log, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Harcness is ranked 172,811th in the world and 4,805th in Lazarus for Lowest Crime Rates, with 10.08 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
