Northern Glory

The Democratic Republic of Northern Glory is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King MarkMan the elder with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.516 billion Northern Gloryians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valley of Golden Halo. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Gloryian economy, worth 360 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 143,440 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, government agents stalk the aisles of grocery stores for out-of-stock medications, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, and grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Glory's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Northern Glory is ranked 151,995th in the world and 8,262nd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -69.75 on the Hayek Index.
