Polar Arc

Population1.926 billion

CapitalPole Arctica


The Icy Tundra of Polar Arc is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Pirpire with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.926 billion Penguins 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pole Arctica. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Polar Arcian economy, worth 246 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 127,897 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

'Sealsnado 6: You Gotta Be Kidding Me' is this summer's top-grossing movie, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and retiring citizens are dragged away in the middle of the night by mysterious men in black suits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Polar Arc's national animal is the Seals, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Penguinism.

Polar Arc is ranked 64,498th in the world and 3,208th in The North Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 0.32 Stalins.
