The People's Republic of Kharkovna is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Kharkovian Mountain Bear population. The compassionate, democratic population of 166 million Kharkovians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 34.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Kharkovian economy, worth 5.86 trillion Kharkov Rubles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,311 Kharkov Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, political candidates who don't release their birth certificates are presumed to have been born in Maxtopia, tuxedo rental companies are inexplicably going out of business, and Leader spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kharkovna's national animal is the Kharkovian Mountain Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kharkovna is ranked 140,211th in the world and 62nd in Eastern Europe for Most Pro-Market, scoring 33.29 on the Rand Index.
