The Empire of Northern Sun is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 443 million Northerners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.
The strong Northern economy, worth 23.4 trillion Iagrias a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 52,716 Iagrias, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.
Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Northern Sun's national animal is the Apollo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
