The Second Reformed Empire of North Defese is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Nikolai Gradysk with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.689 billion Defeskaui are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cadeyrn. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Defeskau economy, worth a remarkable 5,471 trillion Crivnas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an amazing 327,849 Crivnas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,044,434 per year while the poor average 78,292, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.
Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the North Defese Blood Tithe, ND-SPAN features senators wrestling with ever-increasing production elements, most academic research has ground to a halt, and tabloids coo over Emperor Nikolai Gradysk's expected child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. North Defese's national animal is the boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Sacredoral.
