The United States of ITI W Harmonious is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mr Harmony Jr with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 14.11 billion ITI W Harmoniousians 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 Law & Order, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Tolerance. The average income tax rate is 77%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Uranium Mining.

Record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. Crime is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ITI W Harmonious's national animal is the warthog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the rand.

ITI W Harmonious is ranked 10th in Ideology Testing Inc and 45,544th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 62 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
