The Rogue Nation of Harane is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Roluxion with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.536 billion Haraneans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helasfi. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Haraneish economy, worth 232 trillion Zolars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,589 Zolars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, conspiracy nuts claim that the government is trying to bring about an end to civilisation, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harane's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Harane is ranked 102,371st in the world and 53rd in Urana Firma for Most Pro-Market, scoring 39.44 on the Rand Index.
