The Holy Republic of North Bratislava is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Old Saxophone Joe with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.551 billion North Bratislavans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dinkytown. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient North Bratislavan economy, worth a remarkable 1,836 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 192,267 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, the government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails, and Formula One cars in North Bratislava boast 56 miles per gallon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. North Bratislava's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bratislavan Orthodoxy.

North Bratislava is ranked 237,011th in the world and 9,684th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 3.19 Obesity Rate.
