Nord Botten

Population7.359 billion



The Free Land of Nord Botten is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and vat-grown people. The compassionate population of 7.359 billion Nord Bottenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norden. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Nord Bottenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,367 trillion marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 185,828 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas", the government is under the thumb of countless special interests, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, and flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nord Botten's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nord Botten is ranked 63,470th in the world and 2,924th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,531.7 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
