The Hanseatic League of Northern Bigfootia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Hanseatic Council with an even hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, parental licensing program, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.679 billion Northern Bigfootians 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 minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bomberberg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Bigfootian economy, worth a remarkable 7,555 trillion spikes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 254,574 spikes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The poor are quarantined in the inner cities to prevent criminals from entering the suburbs, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, and the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Northern Bigfootia's national animal is the bigfoot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Northern Bigfootia is ranked 207,217th in the world and 2nd in Paradoxia for Most Conservative, scoring 43.69 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
