The Nordic Confederation of Connopolis is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Jarl Jakobsson with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.194 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Social Welfare, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wolverhampton. The average income tax rate is 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
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 -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Connopolis's national animal is the Antarctic Beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is the freedom of consciousness, and its currency is the Silver Krone.
