The Cold Northern North

The Kingdom of The Cold Northern North is a huge, safe nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 279 million Frozen Fockazzes 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of WinterHell. The average income tax rate is 79.8%.

The very strong Cold Northern Northian economy, worth 25.1 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 Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 90,021 Northern Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, and the meaning of life was recently discovered in the patch notes for Version 1.42. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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.

The Cold Northern North is ranked 194,292nd in the world and 8,056th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 18,184.3 Standard Monetary Units.
