Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Practically Dead Raider of New South Arctica is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Zagor with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.538 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, 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 98.2%.

The large but stagnant Arctichawkian economy, worth 146 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 8,886 ice cubes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New South Arctica has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, anti-government web sites are springing up, and the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels. 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 5th in The Black Hawks and 5,025th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 92 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
