The Youtubecom of Harjad is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by John Doe with a fair hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, daily referendums, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.693 billion Frogs hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of miii. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Harjadian economy, worth a remarkable 2,239 trillion Wednesdays a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 209,432 Wednesdays, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Lovesick people are told 'it's not them, it's you', administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, and foreign workers are flooding in as Wednesdays flood out. Crime is well under control. Harjad's national animal is the Lepidobatrachus laevis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Harjad is ranked 304,018th in the world and 8,792nd in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -464.88 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
