The Grand Diarchy of Harmonic Empire is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Caserine Ylva Brynhildr af Raymryt with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, zero percent divorce rate, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.405 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, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ishkur. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Ishkurian economy, worth a remarkable 3,167 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 427,700 Ishkurian Cepels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,260,491 per year while the poor average 114,195, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

A signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that she is in fact a crook after all, there's no weight to modern politics, sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, and the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu. 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 187,764th in the world and 5,380th in Codex Ylvus for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.94 Crimes Per Hour.
