Arctic Coalition

Population6.828 billion

LeaderLars Larson


The United Socialist States of Arctic Coalition is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lars Larson with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.828 billion Arcticans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baffin. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Arctican economy, worth 722 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 105,812 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, the general public only knows their favorite politician's first name, the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, and it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arctic Coalition's national animal is the Caribou, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arctic Coalition is ranked 248,669th in the world and 1,131st in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -10.32 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
