The Most Serene Republic of North Hinterlund is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 850 million North Hinterlundians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Cape of Blue Nord. The average income tax rate is 16.2%.

The frighteningly efficient North Hinterlundian economy, worth 102 trillion Shards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 121,037 Shards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

North Hinterlundians no longer find themselves bumping into their exes at family gatherings, the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of North Hinterlundian democracy, drug-related crimes carry the death penalty, and prudishness is on the way out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. North Hinterlund's national animal is the North Hinterlundian Tundra Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

North Hinterlund is ranked 5,464th in the world and 19th in Thaecia for Rudest Citizens, with 136.93 Insults Per Minute.
