The Federal Republic of Harjad is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Doe with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 4.449 billion Frogs enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jakarta. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Harjadian economy, worth 574 trillion Wednesdays a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,034 Wednesdays, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

In the Beginning was the Word and the Word was "Pragmatism", the news is showing footage of John Doe bullying an old man to the point of tears, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and classes are regularly interrupted by drunken children. Crime is totally unknown. Harjad's national animal is the Lepidobatrachus laevis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Harjad is ranked 139,542nd in the world and 6,665th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.33 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
