The Nordic Confederation of Connopolis is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jarl Jakobsson with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.669 billion Connopolisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wolverhampton. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.
The thriving Connopolisian economy, worth 581 trillion Silver Kroner a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling. Average income is 87,125 Silver Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', and meat-eating is frowned upon. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Connopolis's national animal is the Antarctic Beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the freedom of consciousness.
