The British Colony of Northern Timena is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Commander Johnson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, avant-garde cinema, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.405 billion Timenans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Timena City. The average income tax rate is 50.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Timenan economy, worth 347 trillion Pound Shillings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 144,430 Pound Shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, gun ownership is compulsory, and the Great Northern Timena Desert is reputedly the most uninhabitable place in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Timena's national animal is the Goat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Northern Timena is ranked 171,888th in the world and 536th in New Western Atlantic for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -11.83 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
