The United Confederation of Haarlen is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Edward Larousse with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.158 billion Haarlentons enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Levaris. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Haarlenian economy, worth 221 trillion Guilders a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,540 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, and Haarlen recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haarlen's national animal is the Barracuda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Haarlen is ranked 212,236th in the world and 8,381st in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -7.21 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
