North Elegarth

The Republic of North Elegarth is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.091 billion North Elegarthians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 55.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The North Elegarthian economy, worth 44.6 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,906 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

North Elegarthian politicians are often described as having more style than substance, millions of North Elegarthians are excellent swimmers, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Elegarth's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

North Elegarth is ranked 105,364th in the world and 2,824th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
