The Council Republic of North American Republics is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Workers' National Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.331 billion Republicans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New New York. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Republican economy, worth a remarkable 2,569 trillion Labor Notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 126,371 Labor Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new coalition government has 99 problems and can't agree on how to fix one, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep, and Republican police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime is almost non-existent. North American Republics's national animal is the Robin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secular Humanism.

North American Republics is ranked 224,153rd in the world and 169th in Social Liberal Union for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -387.13 on the Hayek Index.
