Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederation of North Gralend is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Alan Wakefield with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.279 billion Northerners enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Haven City. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient North Gralendian economy, worth a remarkable 1,647 trillion Northern Credits 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 198,977 Northern Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, the comic book series 'President Alan Wakefield and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and crackheads chase drug-loaded drones in hopes of a lucky drop. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Gralend's national animal is the Northern Gold Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

North Gralend is ranked 177,074th in the world and 225th in Wintreath for Fattest Citizens, with 3.5 Obesity Rate.
