The Second Reformed Empire of North Defese is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Nikolai Gradysk with an iron fist, and remarkable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.819 billion Defesians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cadeyrn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

North Defese-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, the government has legalised small-scale capitalism, the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association, and muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. North Defese's national animal is the hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is The Path of Morality, and its currency is the Credit.

North Defese is ranked 5th in Aeneas and 59,501st in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -6 on the Hayek Index.
