The Democratic Republic of SecularNorth is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 604 million SecularNorthians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belladonna. The average income tax rate is 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming SecularNorthian economy, worth 64.3 trillion Litas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,532 Litas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, and everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SecularNorth's national animal is the Cory Chase, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SecularNorth is ranked 142,226th in the world and 5,350th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 32.78 on the Rand Index.
