Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Hydrarian Empire of Northern Scovia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Sidney Hydraria with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 3.049 billion Northern Scovians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, 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 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Scovian economy, worth 300 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 98,516 Reichmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Religious education is a new government priority, the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, and the Northern Scovian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". 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 103,567th in the world and 5,556th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 346.24 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
