The Free Land of Harmony1 is a large, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 94 million Harmony1ians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 62.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Harmony1ian economy, worth 2.92 trillion Hugs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,110 Hugs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, and the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harmony1's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Harmony1 is ranked 66,181st in the world and 2,523rd in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 67 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
