Northern Socialist Council Republics

Population1.793 billion

LeaderFirst Speaker Russ

CurrencyCommonwealth krona

The Commonwealth of Northern Socialist Council Republics is a massive, safe nation, ruled by First Speaker Russ with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.793 billion Northerners are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soundstead. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern economy, worth 263 trillion Commonwealth kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 147,108 Commonwealth kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government is often referred to as "the biggest drug dealer in the nation", coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, and the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Socialist Council Republics's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northern Socialist Council Republics is ranked 5,174th in the world and 322nd in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 239.18 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
