“EAT A BEAVER SAVE A TREE”
Regional Influence: Vassal
The Kingdom of Northern Knights is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.255 billion enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Tourism.
Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Northern Knights's national animal is the Beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Loonie.
