The Republic of Hardyhomeland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ivor Biggun with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 1.68 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hardhome. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hardy economy, worth 229 trillion Finns a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,760 Finns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Ivor Biggun's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, governments opposing Hardyhomeland are beset by rebels, citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin, and there is a dearth of space for new houses. Crime is relatively low. Hardyhomeland's national animal is the Rimmell, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hardyhomeland is ranked 41,337th in the world and 69th in Spiritus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 190,609.48 Standard Monetary Units.
