Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Lord Protector of the Lawns of New South Arctica is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zagor with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.855 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, Defense, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hieraconopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Arctichawkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,411 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 74,878 ice cubes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and elite teams of assassins have been sent into Brasilistan. 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 13,015th in the world and 15th in The Black Hawks for Nudest, with 216.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
