The Democratic Federation of Northern Syria is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 964 million Northern Syrians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Northern Syrian economy, worth 16.5 trillion Syrian pounds 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 17,164 Syrian pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, and prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Syria's national animal is the chukar partridge, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
