The Commonwealth of Hardenburgh is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by William Blackwood with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed population of 10.336 billion Hardenburghians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asguard. The average income tax rate is 64%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The internet has been placed under government control, a punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, racial supremacists indulge their wildest fantasies in cinemas and theatres across the nation, and people are arrested for looking too sternly at whales. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hardenburgh's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its currency is the kroner.

Hardenburgh is ranked 11th in Valeria and 83,319th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -8 on the Hayek Index.
