The United Socialist States of Nordic Democratic Republic is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Eleise Birchwood with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 4.081 billion Nordics enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Leningrad. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Nordic economy, worth 675 trillion Nordic Kroners a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 165,558 Nordic Kroners, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ghost regiments exist only on paper, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nordic Democratic Republic's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Åsatro.

Nordic Democratic Republic is ranked 146,771st in the world and 157th in Northern Utopia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -378.98 on the Hayek Index.
