The Hanseatic League of Northern Bigfootia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the Hanseatic Council with an iron fist, and renowned for its conspicuous electricity pylons, parental licensing program, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.987 billion Northern Bigfootians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. 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 6,007 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 261,353 spikes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,148,409 per year while the poor average 37,382, a ratio of 30.7 to 1.

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 is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Northern Bigfootia's national animal is the bigfoot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Northern Bigfootia is ranked 73,826th in the world and 7th in Paradoxia for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
