Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Second Reformed Empire of North Defese is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Nikolai Gradysk with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.761 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.

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 Defesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,758 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 322,351 Crivnas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 971,411 per year while the poor average 83,394, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

The nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Pepsi and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed, the government has organised a nationwide cull of infected hawks, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, and cheap and tasteless vegetables flood the markets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. North Defese's national animal is the hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Path of Morality.

North Defese is ranked 29th in Aeneas and 142,745th in the world for Nicest Citizens, with -647 Smiles Per Hour (net).
