Northern Ateria

Population5.457 billion

LeaderEmpress Nemo I

CurrencySilver Eagle

The New Empire of Northern Ateria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Nemo I with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, triple-decker prams, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.457 billion North Aterians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Aterian economy, worth a remarkable 1,456 trillion Silver Eagles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 266,995 Silver Eagles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 759,008 per year while the poor average 74,977, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and the navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Northern Ateria's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Yggdism.

Northern Ateria is ranked 9,499th in the world and 11th in Winterfell for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 25,728.09 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
