Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

|Leader||Grand Duchess Papi Xíhuitl V|
The Grand Duchy of Harpiatopia is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Duchess Papi Xíhuitl V with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-working population of 989 million Harpiatopians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harpiatopia City. The average income tax rate is 30.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Harpiatopian economy, worth 74.3 trillion Harpiermarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 75,102 Harpiermarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, international tensions are high as Harpiatopia threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, carrots are orange, apples are red and food waste is increasing, and every politician claims to be at least 1% Native Harpiatopian. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harpiatopia's national animal is the Chicken, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
