The Grand Duchy of Harainis is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 928 million Harainisians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birdy City. The average income tax rate is 53.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Harainisian economy, worth 41.2 trillion Hars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. Average income is 44,434 Hars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, war vets look after war animals, and torture is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harainis's national animal is the Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Harainis is ranked 48,306th in the world and 372nd in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 27.05 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
