The Empire of The North American Powers is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Heath Campbell with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.627 billion North Americans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flaak. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The North American economy, worth 286 trillion Dollars 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 Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. Average income is 61,821 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, joggers are often arrested for breathing too heavily, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, and business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The North American Powers's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

The North American Powers is ranked 73,031st in the world and 1st in United Fascist Federation for Rudest Citizens, with 57.22 Insults Per Minute.
