Arctic Coalition

Population6.6 billion

LeaderLars Larson


The United Socialist States of Arctic Coalition is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lars Larson with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.6 billion Arcticans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Arctican economy, worth 695 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 105,416 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, the general public only knows their favorite politician's first name, and the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event. 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 247,445th in the world and 1,450th in 10000 Islands for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
