The Dieselpunk Dystopia of Harkback Union is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Legate Eutris with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 13.098 billion Harkbacks enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Union City. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Harkback Unionian economy, worth a remarkable 1,957 trillion Cradits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,443 Cradits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government decides its policies by observing the flight of birds, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, the question of 'what is Legate Eutris's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, and the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harkback Union's national animal is the Catten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Utilitarianism.

Harkback Union is ranked 48,809th in the world and 1st in The Quartic Chronosphere for Highest Drug Use, scoring 80.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
