Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederation of North Gralend is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Alan Wakefield with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.907 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Haven City. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient North Gralendian economy, worth a remarkable 1,547 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, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 195,678 Northern Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Northern Gold Hawk, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, and government employees from North Gralend dominate international lumberjack competitions. 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 752nd in the world and 3rd in Wintreath for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 13,464.11 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
