Regional Influence: Instigator
The United States of Noordeinde is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Jonathan Roosevelt with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 11.631 billion Noordeindeans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Hague. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Nude art is becoming wildly popular, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, highschool principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, and extreme political groups are outlawed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noordeinde's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Guilder.
