The Borderlands of Northern Discord is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Apollo Ses with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.153 billion Discordians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Undergrounds. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Discordian economy, worth 120 trillion bitcoins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,878 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Suburban families are finding themselves increasingly short on food as they waste precious water on their lawns, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, and unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Discord's national animal is the capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northern Discord is ranked 72,024th in the world and 3rd in The United Liberal Imperialistic Faction for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,555.63 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
