The Grand Diarchy of Harmonic Empire is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Caserine Ylva Brynhildr af Raymryt with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, parental licensing program, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.258 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 receive no funds. 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 5,004 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 30,708th in the world and 12th in Codex Ylvus for Most Developed, scoring 74.89 on the Human Development Index.
