The Permenantly Grumpy Tree of Harndon is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Spokesperson Kariva Ulav with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, lack of airports, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.058 billion Harndonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quechkhonia. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Harndonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,530 trillion Monalmes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 152,191 Monalmes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Harndon's hospitals, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Harndonian language, the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, and even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harndon's national animal is the Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Harndon is ranked 1,310th in the world and 5th in The Social Liberal Union for Most Developed, scoring 98.16 on the Human Development Index.
