The Atlantic Federal Republic of Northwestinghamshire is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Edward Turner with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 5.769 billion Northwestinghamshireans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Victory. The average income tax rate is 28.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northwestinghamshirean economy, worth 934 trillion Atlantic Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 161,980 Atlantic Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, Northwestinghamshire's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, and the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northwestinghamshire's national animal is the Striped Cucumber Beetle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Northwestinghamshire is ranked 99,469th in the world and 1st in The Assembly of United Nations for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,341.85 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
