The Community of Harstonia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Creed Bratton with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.765 billion Harstonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delmas. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Harstonian economy, worth 219 trillion Euros a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 124,237 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Female restaurant chefs are not allowed to have male customers, obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, the horniness of the great-horned Lion is considered a national priority, and wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them. Crime is totally unknown. Harstonia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
