The Enslaved People of Harmsend is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its public floggings, parental licensing program, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.945 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 aren't funded at all. 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 796 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 201,837 Soulcontainers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,174,167 per year while the poor average 16,401, a ratio of 71.6 to 1.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and there's a big brother in every prison. 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 163,249th in the world and 285th in Spiritus for Most Pacifist, with 3.59 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
