Nord Botten

Population7.364 billion



The Free Land of Nord Botten is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 7.364 billion Nord Bottenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norden. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Nord Bottenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,368 trillion marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 185,839 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations, rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row, and you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nord Botten's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nord Botten is ranked 44,378th in the world and 1,354th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 318.55449751388 Days.
