Harro Waarudho

Population14.441 billion

CapitalLas Noches


The Republic of Harro Waarudho is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Gin with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, complete lack of prisons, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 14.441 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 is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Las Noches. The average income tax rate is 61.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Espadian economy, worth a remarkable 2,269 trillion Jutsus a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 157,170 Jutsus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', every microwave and toaster is being disassembled and probed by inspectors, teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, and public parks are littered with cigarette butts. 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 198,676th in the world and 7,972nd in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -7.07 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
