The Spooktacular Wülfsreich of Hardonius is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Luna Ilune Makyus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, flagrant waste-dumping, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.02 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 Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korstral. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Hardonian economy, worth 903 trillion Hardusions a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 299,280 Hardusions, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,203,720 per year while the poor average 49,797, a ratio of 24.2 to 1.

The military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated'. 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 Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Spectrism.

Hardonius is ranked 31,748th in the world and 1,871st in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,589.16 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
