The Oligarchy of Northlandic Republic is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Council with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 1.002 billion Northlings are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ironbore. The average income tax rate is 38.1%.

The sizeable but inefficient Northlandic economy, worth 49.0 trillion Golden Nuggets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 48,878 Golden Nuggets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy, ritual mummification is making a comeback, liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", and three-year-olds have tantrums because they don't want to be drainage technicians when they grow up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northlandic Republic's national animal is the horse with a stick glued to its head, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northlandic Republic is ranked 112,221st in the world and 820th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 48,878.28 Standard Monetary Units.
