The Republic of Harma and Velutaria (R.H.V. or RHV), commonly known as the Federated Isles (F.I. or FI) or Harma and Velutaria, or simply Harma, is an island nation and trade federation located in Southern Concord. Surrounded entirely by the Harma Channel, it consists of 2 island republics and 27 provinces, of which include 4 major federal island districts, a further five major unincorporated territories and two minor outlying islands. The national capital is Tarino, and the most populous city is Gethua. The financial and trade center of Harma is Shinrarta Dezhra.

Paleo-Concordians migrated from mainland Concord to the islands around 12,000 years ago, and by the 16th century, eighteen technologically advanced tribes in the region formed a collective tribal federation. Their technological advancement was known to have been influenced by civilized nations from the Concord continent, wanting to establish a new order on the islands for trade purposes.

The Republic of Harma is a federated semi-presidential parliamentary republic, with four separate branches of government, including a unicameral legislature and a Trade Congress. Considered a melting pot of cultures and ethnicities, its population has been profoundly shaped by centuries of immigration. The Republic of Harma ranks high in international measures of economic freedom, quality of life, education, and human rights; it has low levels of perceived corruption. However, scholars have criticized it for racial, wealth, and income inequality, and its use of corporal punishment and mass incarceration.

Trading is a massive part of Harmese culture, and this tradition was greatly expanded on during the time of the Harmese Trade Federation in the 1800s. It specializes in the exports of dozens of natural materials, such as palm oils, kaolin coated paper, swan wood, plywood, gold, and chocolate. With industry in Harma heavily regulated by the government, processes for organising new trade deals in and out of Harma have been described as 'never been easier'.
