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 flagrant waste-dumping, avowedly heterosexual populace, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.18 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ishkur. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ishkurian economy, worth a remarkable 2,831 trillion Ishkurian Cepels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 394,406 Ishkurian Cepels, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,595,759 per year while the poor average 4,827, a ratio of 744 to 1.

Fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights. 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 1,224th in the world and 2nd in Codex Ylvus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 13,329.23 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
