The Commonwealth of Nations of NorthPortugal is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Jorge VI with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.235 billion Luso-British hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Luso-British economy, worth 845 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 135,631 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, and hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region. Crime is totally unknown. NorthPortugal's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unofficial.

NorthPortugal is ranked 232,594th in the world and 1,049th in Europe for Most Primitive, scoring -324.91 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
