Arctic Coalition

Population2.703 billion

LeaderLars Larson


The United Socialist States of Arctic Coalition is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lars Larson with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.703 billion Arcticans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baffin. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arctican economy, worth 284 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 105,266 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The news is showing footage of Lars Larson bullying an old man to the point of tears, research grant proposals read like political diatribes, employers are keenest on employees who lack family values, and former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arctic Coalition's national animal is the Caribou, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arctic Coalition is ranked 20,415th in the world and 286th in 10000 Islands for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,156.13 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
