The Superpower of Northern European Federation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Erik Von Kassel with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The compassionate, humorless population of 11.238 billion Northern European Federationians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlin. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern European Federationian economy, worth a remarkable 3,374 trillion Federal Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 300,260 Federal Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing, rumor has it that Erik Von Kassel has won three lotteries in a row, Northern European Federation is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and Northern European Federation's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern European Federation's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northern European Federation is ranked 232,736th in the world and 8,559th in Osiris for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 18.04 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
