The Kingdom of Noth is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its lack of airports, public floggings, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.687 billion Nothians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High City. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nothian economy, worth a remarkable 1,952 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 291,912 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit, military spending is on the increase, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, and people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Noth's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Noth is ranked 89,244th in the world and 3,345th in Balder for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,034.41 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
