The Democratic Socialist Union of The New Nordic Union is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Executive Council of the Union with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.753 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 Healthcare. 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 2,967 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 232,724 Krónas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning, The New Nordic Union recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, they who do not work shall not eat, and bins outnumber trees in city parks. 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 246,092nd in the world and 1,148th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.33 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
