The Kingdom of North Couver is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Marco Roose with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.315 billion North Couverians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Marco. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient North Couverian economy, worth 384 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 166,075 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The paparazzi publicize Royal scandals with the utmost delight, the Treasury Minister takes anxiety medication every time kids lose their sports kits, political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, and retail stores are known for creating their own oddly-similar holidays in the months preceding any major festivity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Couver's national animal is the Snow Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

North Couver is ranked 13,038th in the world and 622nd in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,541.85 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
