The Tribal Confederation of Harndon is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.17 billion Harndonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quechkhonia. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Harndonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,244 trillion Monalmes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 152,310 Monalmes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Monalmes each year, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harndon's national animal is the Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Harndon is ranked 1,624th in the world and 6th in Social Liberal Union for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 98.67 Effective Tax Rate.
