The Empire of Northcoll is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 177 million Northcolls are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 18.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Northcoll economy, worth 9.11 trillion Kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,465 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, and workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northcoll's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
