The Grand Diarchy of Harmonic Empire is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Caserine Ylva Brynhildr af Raymryt with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.899 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ishkur. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ishkurian economy, worth a remarkable 4,740 trillion Ishkurian Cepels a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 532,741 Ishkurian Cepels, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,378,426 per year while the poor average 13,605, a ratio of 321 to 1.

Caserine Ylva Brynhildr af Raymryt's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army, the nation is under martial law, the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, and travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Harmonic Empire flights to avoid the pay lavatories. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Harmonisch Asatru.

Harmonic Empire is ranked 244,873rd in the world and 5,384th in Codex Ylvus for Most Primitive, scoring -981.15 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
