The Commonwealth Republic of Harjanika is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister HJ with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 873 million Harjanikans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harjan City. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Harjanikan economy, worth 62.9 trillion Harjis a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,083 Harjis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, foreign leaders who don't applaud Prime Minister HJ's speeches are regarded as enemies of Harjanika, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and imitation is the sincerest form of felony. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harjanika's national animal is the Harjanikan Penguine, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Harjanika is ranked 49,711th in the world and 509th in 10000 Islands for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 2,737.08 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
