The Supradictatorial Autocracy of North Horsia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Hevoshullu Suomenhevonen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.896 billion North Horsians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hevoskulttitila. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming North Horsian economy, worth 263 trillion marks 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 91,123 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blind dates tend to result in bruised shins, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, employers are gradually adapting to the alien premise of paying wages to their workers, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Horsia's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Cosmic Horse.

North Horsia is ranked 11,347th in the world and 29th in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,088.64 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
