Northbatten

The Kingdom of Northbatten is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working population of 266 million Northbattenians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 39.8%.

The thriving Northbattenian economy, worth 18.4 trillion Lyres a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 69,051 Lyres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Most towns have their Leader High School located on Leader Street, the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, and glamping Northbattenians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northbatten's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northbatten is ranked 119,286th in the world and 282nd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Nudest, with 68 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
