Neo Vikings of Easthumbria

Population4.668 billion

CapitalThe Thing of Hel
LeaderHigh Captain Rackham


The Pirate kingdom of Neo Vikings of Easthumbria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by High Captain Rackham with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.668 billion Neo Vikings of Easthumbrians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Thing of Hel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Neo Vikings of Easthumbrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,398 trillion Örtugs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 299,690 Örtugs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 997,476 per year while the poor average 67,094, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Neo Vikings of Easthumbria, many marriages go virtually unconsummated, and fat-shaming is now public policy. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Neo Vikings of Easthumbria's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Norse.

Neo Vikings of Easthumbria is ranked 201,288th in the world and 7th in Mare Terra for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -15.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
