North Happy Land

Population3.935 billion

CapitalNew Happy City

CurrencyHappy Dollar

The Excellence of North Happy Land is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.935 billion Happy Citizens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Happy City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.7%.

The very strong North Happy Landian economy, worth 461 trillion Happy Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 117,388 Happy Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 386,862 per year while the poor average 26,670, a ratio of 14.5 to 1.

Many say faith is a crutch for those who can't move forward, former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, the diplomatic corps stinks, and flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. North Happy Land's national animal is the Clownfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

North Happy Land is ranked 148,032nd in the world and 7,229th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.45 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
