The Nomadic Peoples of Harphy is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by you don't need to know with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, prohibition of alcohol, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.828 billion Harphyians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of don't worry about it. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.3%.

The Harphyian economy, worth 206 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 72,870 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, there's a bright dawn ahead for Harphy, and foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harphy's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is you would rather me not tell you.

Harphy is ranked 44,304th in the world and 1st in The Alliance of North American Nations for Most Beautiful Environments, with 691.24 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
