The Hydrarian Empire of Northern Scovia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Sidney Hydraria with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, triple-decker prams, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 6.863 billion Northern Scovians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Environment also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hydraria. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Scovian economy, worth 664 trillion Reichmarks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,802 Reichmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Commemoration of the Great The North Pacific War costs almost as much as the war itself, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, and one does not simply walk into the tundra. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Scovia's national animal is the Austrian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Northern Scovia is ranked 71,841st in the world and 1,806th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 569 billion Standard Monetary Units.
