The Allied States of Harletava is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 247 million Harletavans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Harletavan economy, worth 2.25 trillion Quroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Pizza Delivery, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,110 Quroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, and government officials are held to the highest standard of morality. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harletava's national animal is the Harrow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Harletava is ranked 64,309th in the world and 170th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Lowest Crime Rates, with 67.67 law-abiding acts per hour.
