The Gameside Advocate Wülfsreich of Hardonius is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Luna Ilune Makyus with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, otherworldly petting zoo, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.549 billion Hardonii are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korstral. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Hardonii economy, worth a remarkable 1,112 trillion Hardusions a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 313,589 Hardusions, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,322,216 per year while the poor average 48,191, a ratio of 27.4 to 1.

High-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, military spending is on the increase, the industries of Hardonius are coughing all the way to the bank, and ponies are brutally murdered before being left to rot (Hardonius has found 7 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Hardonius's national animal is the Gray Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Spectrism.

Hardonius is ranked 7,625th in the world and 373rd in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 126 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
