North Winter

The Republic of North Winter is a massive, safe nation, ruled by First Triumvir Winter with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.522 billion North Winterians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winterville. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient North Winterian economy, worth 175 trillion Flakes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,370 Flakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and school kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Winter's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

North Winter is ranked 73,493rd in the world and 3,178th in the South Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -48.45 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
