The Republic of Hardyhomeland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ivor Biggun with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.309 billion Homelanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hardhome. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hardy economy, worth 149 trillion Finns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 114,586 Finns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, drive-by spoilers are an increasingly common crime, it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, and laughter while watching foreign diplomats disrobe tends to make diplomatic talks counterproductive. Crime is totally unknown. Hardyhomeland's national animal is the Rimmell, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hardyhomeland is ranked 18,906th in the world and 44th in Spiritus for Most Developed, scoring 76.81 on the Human Development Index.
