The Grand Diarchy of Harmonic Empire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Caserine Ylva Brynhildr af Raymryt with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, flagrant waste-dumping, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.766 billion Ishkurians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ishkur. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ishkurian economy, worth a remarkable 6,359 trillion Ishkurian Cepels a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 540,520 Ishkurian Cepels, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,264,245 per year while the poor average 16,852, a ratio of 253 to 1.

Political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction, bar brawls are an hourly occurrence, boot polish is the favourite lip gloss of entry-level corporate workers, and being nicknamed "Orange Face" has done Caserine Ylva Brynhildr af Raymryt's credibility no favours. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Harmonic Empire's national animal is the Sandrau Wyvern, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Harmonisch Asatru.

Harmonic Empire is ranked 548th in the world and 1st in Codex Ylvus New Dawn for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 20,232.98 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
