North Chimore

Population2.136 billion



The Southern Version of North Chimore is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Aristophana with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.136 billion North Chimoreans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paartadam. The average income tax rate is 63.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient North Chimorean economy, worth 106 trillion K'ihs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 49,876 K'ihs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, Aristophana has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw, carbon-footprint restrictions are making businesses walk, and the nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Chimore's national animal is the Cockroach, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Deeism.

North Chimore is ranked 36,257th in the world and 13th in Merciam for Most Patriotic, with 34.44 flags saluted per person per day.
