The Republic of North mareik is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, cynical population of 278 million North mareikians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 28.4%.

The North mareikian economy, worth 11.5 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 41,384 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

A life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, people talk about things being better when men were men, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, and shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North mareik's national animal is the Snow Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

North mareik is ranked 106,285th in the world and 4,531st in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 49.76 on the Human Development Index.
