Northern Socialist Council Republics

LeaderFirst Speaker Russ

CurrencyCommonwealth krona

The Commonwealth of Northern Socialist Council Republics is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by First Speaker Russ with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.079 billion Northerners are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 Soundstead. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern economy, worth 531 trillion Commonwealth kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 172,558 Commonwealth kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Northern mussels the biggest in The North Pacific, and children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants. Crime is totally unknown. Northern Socialist Council Republics's national animal is the swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern Socialist Council Republics is ranked 4,873rd in the world and 252nd in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 129.08 quips per hour.
