LeaderChairwoman Siri O'Neill


The Provisional Government of Northrop-Grumman is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chairwoman Siri O'Neill with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 30.768 billion Grummians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hawthorne. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Grummian economy, worth a remarkable 4,549 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,856 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 716,783 per year while the poor average 17,654, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.

Pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, Chairwoman Siri O'Neill has just been declared ruler of Northrop-Grumman in an international press conference, Northrop-Grumman has designated Hawthorne as its capital city, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Northrop-Grumman's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Northrop-Grumman is ranked 18,096th in the world and 1st in Concordat of Phoenix for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 217.66 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
