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 a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.656 billion Arctichawkians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Environment, and Defense are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hieraconopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Arctichawkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,528 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 77,772 ice cubes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. 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 177,983rd in the world and 557th in The Black Hawks for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -20.07 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
