The Federation of Nothern Peoples is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Marshal Kalos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.101 billion Nords 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 63.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Nordic economy, worth 50.8 trillion Kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,160 Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Grand Marshal Kalos has just been declared ruler of Nothern Peoples in an international press conference, class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference, theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nothern Peoples's national animal is the Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Nothern Peoples is ranked 171,344th in the world and 9th in Aels for Largest Black Market, with 70.3 billion Standard Monetary Units.
