Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Haven of Harcness is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Denzel with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.119 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asphixter. The average income tax rate is 8.7%.

The all-consuming Harcnessian economy, worth a remarkable 1,456 trillion Twiles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 143,895 Twiles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, prison visits increase substantially during election years, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. 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 9,725th in the world and 402nd in Lazarus for Nudest, with 218.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
