The Incorporated Entity of Harmonious Paperclips is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Viceroy with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.171 billion Harpapzens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cubiclelyse City. The average income tax rate is 70.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Harmonious Paperclipsian economy, worth an astonishing 14,464 trillion Bzytes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 683,205 Bzytes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Harmonious Paperclips's national animal is the Western scrub jay, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Harmonious Paperclips is ranked 206,813th in the world and 7,624th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 0.98 Obesity Rate.
