The Republic of North Illinois is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 240 million North Illinoisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong North Illinoisian economy, worth 11.9 trillion Euros a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 49,672 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and religious education is a new government priority. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Illinois's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

North Illinois is ranked 14,546th in the world and 5th in Deep Storage for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,921.85 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
