The Most Serene Republic of North Southumberland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Rulerman The Wise with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.347 billion North Southers enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Southumberland City. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient North Southish economy, worth a remarkable 5,322 trillion Floogles a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 249,340 Floogles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, the Department of Reduction of Bureaucratic Red Tape has set up a working committee to investigate its own excessive paperwork, and children searching for cat videos must watch dogs in equal proportion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Southumberland's national animal is the Wombat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

North Southumberland is ranked 257,308th in the world and 1,506th in 10000 Islands for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -27.71 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
