Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Lord Protector of the Lawns of New South Arctica is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Zagor with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 19.045 billion Arctichawkians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Environment, and Defense also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hieraconopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Arctichawkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,503 trillion ice cubes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,937 ice cubes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, New South Arctica's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, fruit pickers with degrees in penguin psychology are a common sight, and Hieraconopolis's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New South Arctica's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Cult of Horus.

New South Arctica is ranked 118,144th in the world and 309th in The Black Hawks for Most Conservative, scoring 34.31 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
