Harro Waarudho

Population16.09 billion

CapitalLas Noches


The Republic of Harro Waarudho is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Gin with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cheerful population of 16.09 billion Espadas 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 prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Las Noches. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Espadian economy, worth a remarkable 2,524 trillion Jutsus a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 156,887 Jutsus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, refugees from other nations are flocking to Harro Waarudho's border, and drunk drivers are sentenced to death. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harro Waarudho's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Harro Waarudho is ranked 119,436th in the world and 4,048th in The East Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,128.41 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
