Northern Scovia

The Hydrarian Empire of Northern Scovia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Sidney Hydraria with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 3.806 billion Northern Scovians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hydraria. The average income tax rate is 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Scovian economy, worth 373 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 common. Average income is 98,141 Reichmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Chewing tree bark proves to have limited value during childbirth, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Northern Scovian radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. 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 99,520th in the world and 5,358th in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 620.46 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
