The Commonwealth of Hardenburgh is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by William Blackwood with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.38 billion 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 56%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Basket Weaving.
Skateparks can be found in every city, elections have recently been reintroduced to Hardenburgh, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and businessmen have been raging over recent 'gender equality' policies in the workplace. 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 widespread deforestation, and its currency is the kroner .
