The Grand Duchy of Upper Harmania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Umha Khan with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and state-planned economy. The cynical population of 1.182 billion Upper Harmanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ukhanitan. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Upper Harmanian economy, worth 103 trillion Ragans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 87,363 Ragans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Ukhanitan for fear of causing a fuss, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, and the government violently suppresses separatist movements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Upper Harmania's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Hudoqism.

Upper Harmania is ranked 154,419th in the world and 63rd in Thegye for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 95,292 Standard Monetary Units.
