The Grand Diarchy of Harmonic Empire is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Caserine Ylva Brynhildr af Raymryt with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.174 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, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ishkur. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ishkurian economy, worth a remarkable 2,860 trillion Ishkurian Cepels a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 398,777 Ishkurian Cepels, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,632,627 per year while the poor average 4,920, a ratio of 738 to 1.

Citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, and the government-sponsored autobiography 'A Caserine Ylva Brynhildr af Raymryt For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Caserine Ylva Brynhildr af Raymryt's supporters. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of Ylva.

Harmonic Empire is ranked 207,772nd in the world and 5,060th in Codex Ylvus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 4.96 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
