North Kanuckistan

Population8.865 billion

LeaderVan Ueff III


The Republic of North Kanuckistan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Van Ueff III with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.865 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 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 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming North Kanuckistanian economy, worth 909 trillion Kanucks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,596 Kanucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons, the Violetist community celebrates bombshells being dropped on North Kanuckistan, and the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 20,700th in the world and 737th in the South Pacific for Most Secular, with 53.52 Atheism Rate.
