Harnistan

The People's Republic of Harnistan is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 241 million Harnistanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Harnistanian economy, worth 10.4 trillion Kons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 43,051 Kons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's best to decline if Leader offers to buy a round of drinks, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, and most people learn to drive on crash courses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harnistan's national animal is the Komodo dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Harnistan is ranked 98,330th in the world and 2,763rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Extreme, scoring 19.59 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
