Nothru Lerple

Population200 million


The Grand Duchy of Nothru Lerple is a huge, genial nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 200 million Nothru Lerpleans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Nothru Lerplean economy, worth 10.4 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,819 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Builders across Nothru Lerple are blocked up with orders for new public loos, people with political aspirations study how to make balloon animals, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, and many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nothru Lerple's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nothru Lerple is ranked 80,367th in the world and 4,257th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,506.83 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
