The Republic of Harmonypine is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sean Gentry with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.863 billion Harmonypineans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Harmonypinean economy, worth 958 trillion Silverchips a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 197,202 Silverchips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, and homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harmonypine's national animal is the Packrat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Harmonypine is ranked 15,107th in the world and 1st in Nations of Harmony for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.59 Years.
