North Sylar

The Republic of North Sylar is a very large, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 135 million North Sylarians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 40.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving North Sylarian economy, worth 9.27 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 68,698 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Atheists in the nation feel uneasy living in buildings where they were once vilified, employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, parties that are too noisy are broken up to prevent disturbing wildlife, and swarms of present-laden delivery drones blot out the sun before major holidays. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Sylar's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

North Sylar is ranked 12,883rd in the world and 408th in the West Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 2,617 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
