The Grand Diarchy of Harmonic Empire is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Caserine Ylva Brynhildr af Raymryt with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, enslaved workforce, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.887 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ishkur. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ishkurian economy, worth a remarkable 4,728 trillion Ishkurian Cepels a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 532,096 Ishkurian Cepels, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,383,899 per year while the poor average 13,412, a ratio of 326 to 1.

The backs of 'No Trespassing' signs were made for you and me, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, glamping Ishkurians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Harmonisch Asatru.

Harmonic Empire is ranked 3,655th in the world and 2nd in Codex Ylvus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 19,848.73 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
