The Hydrarian Empire of Northern Scovia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Sidney Hydraria with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 4.345 billion Northern Scovians 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 enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hydraria. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Scovian economy, worth 427 trillion Reichmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,407 Reichmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government violently suppresses separatist movements, the government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code, coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, and many friends and relatives of Empress Sidney Hydraria have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Scovia's national animal is the Austrian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Northern Scovia is ranked 15,231st in the world and 726th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 4,253.98 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
