The Grand Diarchy of Harmonic Empire is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Caserine Ylva Brynhildr af Raymryt with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, zero percent divorce rate, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.229 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, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, 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 64.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ishkurian economy, worth a remarkable 2,921 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 404,162 Ishkurian Cepels, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,684,701 per year while the poor average 4,946, a ratio of 744 to 1.

Nine out of ten citizens of Harmonic Empire answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, trespassers entering Caserine Ylva Brynhildr af Raymryt's office are immediately vaporized, and funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience. 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 204,381st in the world and 5,221st in Codex Ylvus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 4.66 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
