The Constitutional Monarchy of Harpia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 722 million Harpians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vulpetan. The average income tax rate is 39.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Harpian economy, worth 74.4 trillion Vulpes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 103,007 Vulpes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, the "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, and a surprising number of police officers have been arrested for Raposa sacrifices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harpia's national animal is the Raposa, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Harpia is ranked 171,344th in the world and 81st in Flanelistan for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
