AnimalGolden Pheasant

The Kingdom of North East Somerset is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jacob Rees-Mogg with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 34.336 billion Somersetians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient North East Somersetian economy, worth a remarkable 6,132 trillion Golden Sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,596 Golden Sovereigns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 509,669 per year while the poor average 49,885, a ratio of 10.2 to 1.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, it's always rabbit season, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and most academic research has ground to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. North East Somerset's national animal is the Golden Pheasant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

North East Somerset is ranked 206,312th in the world and 7,272nd in Balder for Safest, scoring 5.11 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
