The People's Republic of Northerer Korea is a huge, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 772 million Northerer Koreans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Northerer Korean economy, worth 51.4 trillion Kims 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 66,610 Kims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is under martial law, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, the term "Native Northerer Korean" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, and workers' complaints never reach central planning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northerer Korea's national animal is the Rice, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Northerer Korea is ranked 130,556th in the world and 5th in Cyride for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -48.12 on the Hayek Index.
