North Kanuckistan

Population6.536 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 remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.536 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 large 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 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming North Kanuckistanian economy, worth 679 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 104,034 Kanucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students abandon classrooms for online education, the nation is noticeably more cheerful on Tuesdays, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés. 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 17,867th in the world and 435th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,632.68 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
