Northern Nivaria

Population1.533 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Widdaem


The United Republics of Northern Nivaria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Widdaem with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.533 billion Nivari hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nivington. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nivarian economy, worth 237 trillion bucks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 154,778 bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and arbitration is mightier than the sword. Crime is totally unknown. Northern Nivaria's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Northern Nivaria is ranked 212,915th in the world and 1,344th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -220.97 on the Hayek Index.
