Nordliches Stadt

Population2.718 billion



The Imperial State of Nordliches Stadt is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Wilhelm with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 2.718 billion Nordliches Stadtians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nordliches Stadtian economy, worth 292 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 107,524 Reichsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Nordliches Stadt" at foreigners, government spokespeople are working overtime trying to convince concerned citizens that Wilhelm is not a crook, the cruise missile launchers on the field hospital roof are purely deterrent in purpose, and the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nordliches Stadt's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Nordliches Stadt is ranked 241,918th in the world and 12,745th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.04 crimes per hour.
