The Utopian Society of North Johen Ezermard is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Christopher Devas with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.06 billion North Johen Ezermardians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Industry, with Welfare and Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostham. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient North Johen Ezermardian economy, worth 167 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 158,320 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Shouting contests are an important part of government job interviews, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and the lasting legacy of the current generation is a million years of buried radioactivity. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. North Johen Ezermard's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Democrazy.

North Johen Ezermard is ranked 8,948th in the world and 7th in Roman Byzantine Union for Most Cultured, scoring 115 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
