The Grand Diarchy of Harmonic Empire is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Caserine Ylva Brynhildr af Raymryt with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.163 billion Ishkurians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ishkur. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ishkurian economy, worth a remarkable 2,861 trillion Ishkurian Cepels a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 399,473 Ishkurian Cepels, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,638,962 per year while the poor average 4,929, a ratio of 738 to 1.

The government spends twice as much reclaiming lost settlements from the sea as it could've on coastal defences, official maps have to be revised on a weekly basis, the population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Harmonic Empire's national animal is the Sandrau Wyvern, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of Ylva.

Harmonic Empire is ranked 23,521st in the world and 1st in Codex Ylvus for Lowest Crime Rates, with 77.86 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
