The Provisional Government of Northrop-Grumman is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chairwoman Siri O'Neill with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.524 billion Grummians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.
The relatively small, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hawthorne. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Grummian economy, worth a remarkable 3,740 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 146,542 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 710,411 per year while the poor average 17,497, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.
Pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, Chairwoman Siri O'Neill has just been declared ruler of Northrop-Grumman in an international press conference, Northrop-Grumman has designated Hawthorne as its capital city, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Northrop-Grumman's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
Northrop-Grumman is ranked 2nd in Concordat of Phoenix and 7,014th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 363 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
