Harro Waarudho

Population20.625 billion

CapitalLas Noches


The Republic of Harro Waarudho is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.625 billion Espadas have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Las Noches. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Espadian economy, worth a remarkable 3,533 trillion Jutsus a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 171,331 Jutsus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The parliament building has installed a revolving door, political commentators say that Gin's fruitcake plans are about to go pear-shaped, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, and government negotiators never forget to say "pretty please" when begging for custody of its criminals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harro Waarudho's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Harro Waarudho is ranked 72,432nd in the world and 1,107th in The East Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 210,313 Standard Monetary Units.
