The Democratic Socialist Union of The New Nordic Union is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Executive Council of the Union with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.554 billion Northerners are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keypmannahavn. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Nordic economy, worth a remarkable 1,508 trillion Krónas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 230,162 Krónas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, and 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song. Crime is totally unknown. The New Nordic Union's national animal is the Dark Bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The New Nordic Union is ranked 333rd in the world and 16th in Europe for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 153.55 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
