CurrencyCommonwealth krona

The Commonwealth of Northern Socialist Council Republics is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Speaker Russ with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.259 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soundstead. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern economy, worth 162 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, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 128,813 Commonwealth kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, the World Commonwealth Games have been won again by Northern Socialist Council Republics as no other country cares enough to compete, First Speaker Russ's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, and witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Socialist Council Republics's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northern Socialist Council Republics is ranked 13,077th in the world and 910th in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 23.99 Bank.
