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 multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.482 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asphixter. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Harcnessian economy, worth a remarkable 1,636 trillion Twiles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 156,106 Twiles, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here. 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 91,823rd in the world and 2,970th in Lazarus for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 138.03 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
