The Classless Society of Harmosovia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by comrade Terranov with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.025 billion Soviet people are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pograntsy. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Soviet economy, worth 111 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 109,039 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, increasing inclusiveness is a sign of the times, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and voting is voluntary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harmosovia's national animal is the Kitten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Harmosovia is ranked 282,190th in the world and 6,937th in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 4.5 Obesity Rate.
