The United Socialist States of Harleying is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 616 million Harleyingians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Harleyingian economy, worth 28.7 trillion Joe Our Leader's Pound Sterlings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,624 Joe Our Leader's Pound Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Literally voiceless people are unable to protest when food and water are denied to them, some say Leader has gone MAD after authorizing the development of apocalyptic biological weapons, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, and the government is a law unto itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harleying's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Harleying is ranked 70,832nd in the world and 238th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 59.87 on the Human Development Index.
