The Black Snake with Green Eyes of Harkagrad is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 3.265 billion black snakes with green eyes are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Nearest Apple Tree. The average income tax rate is 61.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped black snake with green eyes economy, worth 99.9 trillion pieces of cloth a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,591 pieces of cloth, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Harkagrad recently decided against having a capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harkagrad's national animal is the black snake with green eyes, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Harkagrad is ranked 120,564th in the world and 28th in Celtia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 70 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
