The Republic of North Motforland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Da Best leader everer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.397 billion North Motforlandians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ye Nah Mate. The average income tax rate is 33.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient North Motforlandian economy, worth 140 trillion bitcoins 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. 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 100,720 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Armed security details escort librarians to their homes, terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, North Motforlandians must literally pay their respects to hear from their political representatives, and epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. North Motforland's national animal is the leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of the Purple Goat.

North Motforland is ranked 81,297th in the world and 3,259th in Osiris for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 147,337 Standard Monetary Units.
