The TNP RMB Gameside Advocate of Hardonius is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Luna Ilune Makyus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.618 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, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korstral. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Hardonian economy, worth 750 trillion Hardusions a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 286,688 Hardusions, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 928,038 per year while the poor average 66,878, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million Hardusion battlesuits, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons. 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 4,524th in the world and 313th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 12,661.39 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
