Overview Factbook Dispatches Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Hydrarian Empire of Northern Scovia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Sidney Hydraria with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 3.387 billion Northern Scovians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Scovian economy, worth 329 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 97,387 Reichmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, many aides in Empress Sidney Hydraria's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. 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 18,737th in the world and 869th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,752.29 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
