Sjorve Ned

Population838 million

LeaderGeorge Lucas


The Allied States of Sjorve Ned is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by George Lucas with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 838 million Sjorve Nedians 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, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sector-1. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sjorve Nedian economy, worth 118 trillion Quartzes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,730 Quartzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Dining out often involves wolves on the plate no matter what you order, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, George Lucas is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, and school lockers are filled with fancy underwear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sjorve Ned's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sjorve Ned is ranked 16,272nd in the world and 495th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 297.02 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
