The Council Republic of North American Republics is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Workers' National Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 23.859 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 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Republican economy, worth a remarkable 3,021 trillion Laborums 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 126,636 Laborums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Official Sermon-Free Zones are set-up around the nation's hotels, government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, ignorance is considered a politically desirable quality, and giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Workers' National Council is a silly poophead. Crime is well under control. North American Republics's national animal is the Robin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular Humanism.

North American Republics is ranked 25,224th in the world and 48th in The Social Liberal Union for Most Income Equality, scoring 74.9 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
