The Grand Duchy of Harpiatopia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Duchess Papi Xíhuitl V with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.188 billion Harpiatopians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harpiatopia City. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Harpiatopian economy, worth 366 trillion Harpiermarks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,569 Harpiermarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, mechanics are often exhausted by their work, and kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harpiatopia's national animal is the Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Harpy Church.

Harpiatopia is ranked 23,737th in the world and 760th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,432.34 on the Edu-tellignceŽ Test Score.
