OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federation of Harmin is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Michael Hunt with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.646 billion Harminians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Richfield. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism industries.

Most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, Harmin's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Harmin's national animal is the raccoon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Monetism, and its currency is the sto.

Harmin is ranked 2,314th in Osiris and 93,504th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -67 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
