North Kanuckistan

Population8.448 billion

LeaderVan Ueff III


The Republic of North Kanuckistan is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Van Ueff III with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 8.448 billion North Kanuckies are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beaverton. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming North Kanuckistanian economy, worth 898 trillion Kanucks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,408 Kanucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jennifer Government is a bestseller, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", for just a few extra Kanucks North Kanuckies can get new driving records with their new cars, and libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Kanuckistan's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

North Kanuckistan is ranked 65,203rd in the world and 2,620th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,090.27 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
