The Community of Graceful Harmony is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Balleticee with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.349 billion Harmonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elegant City. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Harmonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,119 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 134,114 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, graffiti graces every city's streets, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign governments' extravagances, and the parliament building has installed a revolving door. Crime is totally unknown. Graceful Harmony's national animal is the Quokka, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Graceful Harmony is ranked 11,015th in the world and 556th in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 373.85 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
