The Colony of Northern Nigaria is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 429 million Northern Nigarians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.5%.

The powerhouse Northern Nigarian economy, worth 31.8 trillion Rokas a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,135 Rokas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 402,571 per year while the poor average 7,032, a ratio of 57.2 to 1.

Autopsies often involve only cursory examination, a milk bath costs more than bathing in money, corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, and the government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Nigaria's national animal is the Salmon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern Nigaria is ranked 56,512th in the world and 7th in Alt Earth Roleplay for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 5,564.78 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
