The Colony of Hartenia is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.096 billion Hartenians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, with Healthcare, Education, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pecunia. The average income tax rate is 13.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hartenian economy, worth 173 trillion Scudoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 158,038 Scudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience. Crime is totally unknown. Hartenia's national animal is the Sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hartenia is ranked 11,631st in the world and 17th in Thaecia for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 6,581.73 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
