Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Lord Protector of the Lawns of New South Arctica is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zagor with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, cheerful population of 18.681 billion Arctichawkians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hieraconopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The enormous but inefficient Arctichawkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,548 trillion ice cubes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,894 ice cubes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations, and national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys'. 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 70,439th in the world and 86th in The Black Hawks for Largest Black Market, with 306 billion Standard Monetary Units.
