Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Second Reformed Empire of North Defese is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Nikolai Gradysk with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.696 billion Defeskaui are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cadeyrn. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Defeskau economy, worth a remarkable 5,901 trillion Crivnas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an amazing 333,481 Crivnas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,055,672 per year while the poor average 80,374, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the North Defese Blood Tithe, ND-SPAN features senators wrestling with ever-increasing production elements, most academic research has ground to a halt, and tabloids coo over Emperor Nikolai Gradysk's expected child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. North Defese's national animal is the boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Sacredoral.

North Defese is ranked 1,442nd in the world and 83rd in Balder for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 14,063.33 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
