The Youtubecom of Harjad is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by John Doe with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.679 billion Frogs enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jakarta. The average income tax rate is 89.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Harjadian economy, worth 649 trillion Wednesdays a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 138,812 Wednesdays, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Jakarta XV Regiment (aka "The Goat Starers") have yet to win a battle, uprooting flowers for religious ceremonies is a felony, commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. Crime is totally unknown. Harjad's national animal is the Lepidobatrachus laevis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Harjad is ranked 55,642nd in the world and 2,714th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,468.06 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
