The Enslaved People of Harmsend is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its digital currency, triple-decker prams, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.313 billion Slaves 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Londo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The frighteningly efficient enslaved economy, worth 869 trillion Soulcontainers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 201,707 Soulcontainers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,176,820 per year while the poor average 16,279, a ratio of 72.3 to 1.

Foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Enslaved Moonshine", the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, visions of giant pink Darkwraiths are a common side effect after Slaves eat their meals, and just as students finish their homework it's time for school. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harmsend's national animal is the Darkwraith, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of the Darkwraith.

Harmsend is ranked 1,907th in the world and 4th in Spiritus for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 192,226.91 Standard Monetary Units.
