The Kingdom of The Cold Northern North is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Maximus Bernius with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.172 billion Frozen Special Snoflakezzes are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of WinterHell. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Cold Northern Northian economy, worth 178 trillion Northern Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 151,931 Northern Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, abattoirs are struggling with the directive to 'wait until the animal dies of a ripe old age', many friends and relatives of Maximus Bernius have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and the carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Cold Northern North's national animal is the Golden Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Love of the Leader.

The Cold Northern North is ranked 62,403rd in the world and 2,531st in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1.36 Bank.
