Northern Socialist Council Republics

Population3.604 billion

LeaderFirst Speaker Russ

CurrencyCommonwealth krona

The Commonwealth of Northern Socialist Council Republics is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by First Speaker Russ with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.604 billion Northerners 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soundstead. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern economy, worth 622 trillion Commonwealth kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 172,773 Commonwealth kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Northern Socialist Council Republics, lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders, government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens", and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". Crime is totally unknown. Northern Socialist Council Republics's national animal is the swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern Socialist Council Republics is ranked 218,319th in the world and 10,574th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5.83 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
