The United States of ITI W Harmonious is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mr Harmony Jr with an even hand, and notable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.297 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 70%, 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.

The nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is relatively low, 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 5th in Ideology Testing Inc and 346th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 721 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
