Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Haven of Harcness is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Denzel with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.582 billion Harcnessians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 7.9%.

The powerhouse Harcnessian economy, worth a remarkable 1,225 trillion Twiles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 127,939 Twiles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

People are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, and the children of Harcness are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious 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 7,649th in the world and 384th in Lazarus for Highest Economic Output, with 1,225 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
