The Kingdom of Northumbria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Eric III Cyning with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.42 billion Northumbrians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dúnholm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.8%.

The powerhouse Northumbrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,712 trillion Sceats a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 98,327 Sceats, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 519,596 per year while the poor average 9,881, a ratio of 52.6 to 1.

The Northumbria Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, a punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, the upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned, and the new coalition government has 99 problems and can't agree on how to fix one. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Northumbria's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cristendóm.

Northumbria is ranked 28,701st in the world and 8th in Northumbria for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74.15 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
