Northwest Isles

Population6.631 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Joe


The Commonwealth of Northwest Isles is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Joe with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working population of 6.631 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oakland. The average income tax rate is 9.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Northwest Islesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,043 trillion euros a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 157,395 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, babies are a small but significant export, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, and the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Northwest Isles's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northwest Isles is ranked 136,417th in the world and 615th in Europe for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 599 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
