The Empire of North Batica is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Imperator Frederick II with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, cynical population of 9.352 billion North Baticans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fontina. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient North Batican economy, worth 996 trillion Batican Marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,518 Batican Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

War vets look after war animals, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, the nation's museums are real penny-pinchers, and mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Batica's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

North Batica is ranked 52,562nd in the world and 417th in Europe for Most Patriotic, with 18.8 flags saluted per person per day.
