The economy of Hardin County is dominated by the adjacent Fort Knox Military Installation; the Army Human Resource Center, the largest construction project in the history of Fort Knox, began in November 2007.

It is a $185 million, three-story, 880,000-square-foot complex. As many as 2,100 new permanent human resources, information technology, administrative white-collar civilian professionals will be working there. Officials expect that as many as 12,000 people, including the families of soldiers and civilian workers to relocate to the area as a result of the Fort Knox realignment of 2005. $1 billion in new federal and state construction, infrastructure funds were committed to Fort Knox, in the surrounding areas by the end of 2011. Gov. Steve Beshear of Kentucky announced the creation of a task force to help Hardin County, the surrounding counties prepare for the Fort Knox realignment; the group is "designed to meet specific needs" in areas such as transportation, economic development, education and sewer availability, area wide planning. Hardin County is classified by the Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control as both a moist county and a "limited dry county". Under ABC terminology, a "moist county" is an otherwise dry county in which at least one city has voted to allow sale of alcoholic beverages for off-premises consumption.

The word "limited" means that at least one city within the county, or the county as a whole, has voted to allow alcohol sales in qualifying restaurants. In the case of Hardin County, Elizabethtown and Vine Grove all voted to allow off-premises sales in October 2011. West Point has voted to allow sale of alcohol by the drink in restaurants that seat at least 50 and derive at least 70% of their revenue from food; the formal government structure of Hardin County consists of a Fiscal Court along with six incorporated cities. Elizabethtown is the county seat. In 2010, the Hardin County Government, led by Hardin County Judge/Executive Harry Berry, commissioned a study entitled, "Hardin County Vision Project," in part to explore the benefits of consolidated government in the county; the growth of the area and the changes expected due to the realignment of Fort Knox led to the study. Hardin County United, a volunteer-led organization, was established to consider the findings of this project and develop recommendations for the future of government in the county.

Law enforcement and property tax collection are provided by the Hardin County Sheriff's Office. Three public school districts operate in the county: The Hardin County Schools serve K-12 students in most of the county, with the exception of Elizabethtown, Fort Knox, West Point. The

King of Dragon Pass

King of Dragon Pass is a 1999 strategy simulation fantasy video game published by A Sharp. Set in the fictional world of Glorantha, the player controls the fate of a barbarian clan settling in the dangerous frontier region of Dragon Pass. Released for PC, the game was a commercial failure but became a cult classic, it was ported for iOS in 2011, was released for Android and re-released for PCs. The iOS versions were much more commercially successful than the original PC release, leading to a spiritual successor, Six Ages: Ride Like The Wind, being released in 2018; the player controls a clan of Orlanthi across several generations. Orlanthi clans bear some similarities to the Iron Age Nordic peoples, such as lawspeakers, the worship of a thunder god and a reliance on raiding, as well as Bronze Age Celtic and Italic peoples aesthetically, with the appearance of many of the tribesmen reflecting these origins. At the beginning of the game the clan has fled its home of Heortland after a foreign magician known as Belintar or'the Pharaoh' usurps the throne.

Along with dozens of other Orlanthi clans, the clan seeks to build a new home in Dragon Pass, a populated area left deserted after the Dragonkill War hundreds of years ago. With the Orlanthi clans variously feuding, trading with and raiding each other, a host of inhuman presences such as elves and trolls, Dragon Pass is a free but dangerous frontier society compared to the tyrannical rule of the Pharaoh in Heortland. To the west, a persistent danger is the'Horse-Spawn,' a society of nomadic mounted warriors; as time passes by the clans form into'tribes,' loose confederations of half a dozen clans. A prophet visits the player's clan to inform them of a great destiny; the player must guide the clan through seven heroquests and manage a number of events, including co-operating with other clans to build a town and making peace with the Horse-Spawn by marrying their queen. If the player is successful, the clan's chieftain unites the Orlanthi tribes and the Horse-Spawn into a kingdom, becoming King of Dragon Pass.

The player controls the seven-member clan ring leading the clan, providing leadership to the clan in all aspects of its life, such as trading, warfare and diplomacy. The player can make two macro-level decisions per each of the five seasons in the Gloranthan year. Random events are drawn from a pool of hundreds, ranging from mundane law disputes to spiritual or demonic incursions, they are influenced by previous decisions and outcomes. In battle, the player determines the goals and preparations, chooses the actions of his nobles at pivotal moments. To succeed, a player must balance the various needs of survival and prospering, as well as manage the problems presented by the setting or the clan individuals - a lack of food might be solvable by clearing more farmland, but when the forest responds by sending a talking fox to urge leaving the trees alone, a wrong choice could bring the clan hunters to war with their environment. Should a member of the clan act in a selfish and foolish manner, action needs to be taken to stabilize and defuse the situation, if necessary.

King of Dragon Pass contains no animation, instead depicting people and events with hand-drawn artwork. The game has elements of strategy and management simulation, role-playing video games. King of Dragon Pass was conceived and developed by David Dunham, using his friend Greg Stafford's setting of Glorantha. At peak development, the A Sharp production team consisted of only 12 people; the game cost $500,000 to make a commercial failure. It sold disproportionately well in Finland thanks to a glowing review in Pelit. King of Dragon Pass had been conceived for the Apple Newton. Following Apple's announcement of the iPhone in 2007, Dunham was drawn back to the potential of the game for a handheld platform, an updated version of the game was released for iOS on September 8, 2011; this version was updated to be a universal iOS app for compatibility with the iPad on September 6, 2012. The original Windows version was re-released by GOG.com on August 28, 2012. David Dunham announced in March 2013. HeroCraft ported the iOS version to Android and released it on August 12, 2014.

A Windows Phone version by HeroCraft, was released a month on September 23. A new PC version based on the Android version was released July 29, 2015. A spiritual successor, Six Ages: Ride Like The Wind, was announced in 2014, released for iOS on June 28, 2018, PC and Mac in 2019; the game's hand painted watercolor artwork won the Best Visual Art prize in the 2000 Independent Games Festival. Rock, Shotgun described the game in retrospective in 2017 as "a management game, but at its heart is an ongoing RPG chronicle." In 2016, the game placed 5th on Rock Paper Shotgun's The 50 best strategy games on PC list. Reviewing the iPhone version at TouchArcade, Eli Hodapp described it as "one of the most in-depth and strategic gameplay experiences I've had so far on my iPhone," describing the game as a conglomeration of Civilization and Choose Your Own Adventure.

Tarax

Tarax is an Australian brand of soft drink. Tarax was the brand-name of bottler. George Pethard, an English-born storeman based in Numurkah, established a business selling a herbal soft drink described as a "non-alcoholic beer" made without yeast, known as "Taraxale". "Tarax" derived from the Latin name for the dandelion. George joined his father's business in 1898 and moved to Bendigo in 1902, establishing the business behind "Taraxville", his home in the suburb of Golden Square; the business was expanded with Tarax Bars being established throughout Victoria. After World War II, the company restricted itself to selling conventional carbonated soft drink. In the 1950s Tarax won an Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology Award for its co-production of a flame spin sterilizer. Tarax was a marketing innovator, including sponsorship of the long-running Tarax Happy Show on television from 1957, compered by Happy Hammond and "Uncle" Norman Swain, the development of new packaging, such as the steel can.

Tommy Tarax was a character who appeared on bottle tops and advertising displays, on TV as a puppet with ventriloquist Ron Blaskett. Producing a wide range of flavours including lemonade, lime, lemon, raspberry, root beer, bitter lemon, "Solo", "Panda", the American "Dixi-Cola", Tarax was at its peak in the 1960s and was one of the top-selling soft drink brands in Victoria. One of the Tarax jingles was: "Be a Top Man, Drink a bottle or can of Tarax Top Ten flavours." "Oranges turn into Tarax, Lovely lovely Tarax. Oranges turn into Tarax, The drink from the top of the tree." They did can UDL pre-mix alcoholic drinks at the Huntingdale site for many years and had an unsuccessful attempt to produce a flavored UHT milk drink in a can. Cadbury Schweppes took over Tarax in 1972, but continued to market Tarax soft drinks as a regional brand to complement its national brands. In the 1970s the brand re-invented itself, with the dropping of several flavours and the introduction of "Black Label" in lemonade and orange.

An extensive advertising campaign featured sultry actress Abigail, famous from the TV series Number 96. Pamela Gibbons of Number 96, performed in the Black Label commercials. While Tarax's popularity has waned since the 1970s, it has still remained on the market, albeit with far lower prominence, relegated to supermarket shelves.
