The Queendom of North Polemi is a small, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 23 million North Polemians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 43.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The North Polemian economy, worth 820 billion Bitcoins a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,672 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, the government spends millions of Bitcoins every year prosecuting spammers, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, and the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Polemi's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

North Polemi is ranked 101,262nd in the world and 66th in The Commonwealth Federation for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 50.99 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
