The Delegate Protector of Lawns of New South Arctica is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Zagor with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.886 billion Arctichawkians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Environment, and Defense also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hieraconopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.
The enormous but underdeveloped Arctichawkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,681 trillion ice cubes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,578 ice cubes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New South Arctica's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Cult of Horus.
