The Minarchist State of Harinko is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Goddess Aqua with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.605 billion Harinkoans 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, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lucilles. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Harinkoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,352 trillion Harinko Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 356,199 Harinko Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

It is often said that only Goddess Aqua could bring down Dàguó, vital infrastructure development is on hold because of 'nature and stuff', meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy, and lawyers are ordering red ink and 'Cease and Desist' rubber stamps in preparation for the return of copyright law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Harinko's national animal is the Muffalo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is CBT.

Harinko is ranked 115,350th in the world and 206th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Politically Free, scoring 59.05 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
