The southern North

Population445 million

CapitalCentral City


The Democratic Republic of The southern North is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 445 million Norse 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central City. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Nordish economy, worth 10.4 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 23,406 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All recreational drugs are legal, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, The southern North has designated Central City as its capital city, and racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The southern North's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The southern North is ranked 76,647th in the world and 1,717th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 84.78965406792 Days.
