The Confederacy of North Sandalusia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Diktator Marcel Durmont with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.091 billion North Sandalusians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caen. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.2%.

The powerhouse North Sandalusian economy, worth 196 trillion Nothern Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 93,935 Nothern Francs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 383,478 per year while the poor average 15,246, a ratio of 25.2 to 1.

Maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter, the studies of art and philosophy are banned, university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, and protests are prohibited from blocking traffic. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. North Sandalusia's national animal is the Vulture, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

North Sandalusia is ranked 49,213th in the world and 13th in Deutschland for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,041.91 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
