The Grand Duchy of Kharkov is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Maochao with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 42.709 billion Kharkovites 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 3.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Kharkovian economy, worth 735 trillion gold pieces a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 17,226 gold pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, Maochao sports gold-plated grillz to promote the government's hard money policy, and nothing gets the party jumping like Maochao specifying how high. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kharkov's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kharkov is ranked 249,156th in the world and 1st in Future Panthalassa for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.57 bananas ingested per day.
