The Republic of Hardyhomeland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ivor Biggun with a fair hand, and renowned for its feral children, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.056 billion Homelanders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hardhome. The average income tax rate is 73.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Hardy economy, worth 323 trillion Finns a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 157,430 Finns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

A government program is underway to revitalize Hardyhomeland's beaches, it is said that a Hardy woman's work is never done, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Ivor Biggun to meetings with foreign heads of state, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hardyhomeland's national animal is the Rimmell, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hardyhomeland is ranked 10,284th in the world and 21st in United Kingdom for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
