Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Practically Dead Raider of New South Arctica is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zagor with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.318 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, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hieraconopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The large but stagnant Arctichawkian economy, worth 144 trillion ice cubes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 8,839 ice cubes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, shock troops shock enemy forces with their nudity, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 many lush forests, and its national religion is The Cult of Horus.

New South Arctica is ranked 2nd in The Black Hawks and 2,230th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 155 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
