The Commonwealth of Northwest Isles is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Justin with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The hard-nosed population of 2.511 billion Northwest Islanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantis. The average income tax rate is 14.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northwest Islesian economy, worth 246 trillion euros a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,267 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police are trained in using their steel-capped boots as a tool of law enforcement, tea and biscuits have replaced waterboarding and sleep deprivation as the primary tools of interrogation, the military sees national borders more as guidelines than absolutes, and money always talks but the taboo subject of death just brings silence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Northwest Isles's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Northwest Isles is ranked 28,113th in the world and 78th in United Kingdom for Longest Average Lifespans, with 86 Years.
