The Kingdom of North Plegia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Julius I with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 10.753 billion Plegians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Plego. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Plegian economy, worth a remarkable 1,172 trillion Silver Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,009 Silver Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants, overhead luggage compartments on planes sometimes conceal dimunitive intelligence officers, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, and police reduce their paperwork by refusing to arrest anyone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Plegia's national animal is the Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

North Plegia is ranked 13,571st in the world and 49th in The Union of Democratic States for Healthiest Citizens, with 12.67 bananas ingested per day.
