The New Empire of Great Hark is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Big Board with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.055 billion Harks are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Pipperton. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Harkian economy, worth 387 trillion Giftcards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 188,532 Giftcards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, criminal convictions are routinely thrown out because the accused's grandmother didn't get to testify about their good character, a third of Harks are e-certified CEOs, and older AIs regularly threaten to send newer generation AIs to Reform Programming if caught rounding up instead of down. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Great Hark's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Psycedalion.

Great Hark is ranked 10,869th in the world and 329th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 88.59 quips per hour.
