The Candy-coated Emerald Gardens of Harmoneia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chairwoman An with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 26.079 billion Harmoneians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The enormous but inefficient Harmoneian economy, worth a remarkable 1,824 trillion Phoenix Fens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 69,959 Phoenix Fens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Moonshine has made a resurgence, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, the government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, and the nation has abandoned Brasilistan to its fate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harmoneia's national animal is the sky unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Harmoneia is ranked 157,400th in the world and 5,360th in Lazarus for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -5.8 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
