The United Socialist States of Northern Aughterne is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Comrade Baggins with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 1.827 billion Northern Aughterneans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chernograd. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Northern Aughternean economy, worth 180 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Trout Farming. Average income is 98,788 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes, the legal system for the political class is completely separate from the one for normal citizens, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and gambling is outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Aughterne's national animal is the Tundra Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northern Aughterne is ranked 112,113th in the world and 4,907th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 61.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
