The Third Reformed Empire of North Defese is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Marlen Yefrem with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.7 billion are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, 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 Port Sindri. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, the government props up questionable pizza establishments in the name of health, and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. North Defese's national animal is the hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Vinnispakkr, and its currency is the Credit.

North Defese is ranked 1st in Adrastos and 363rd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 22 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
