The Empire of The North American Powers is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Heath Campbell with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.63 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, moralistic, well-organized 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 71.2%.

The large but inefficient North American economy, worth 151 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 57,460 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the North American language, foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with Heath Campbell, babysitters are a thing of the past, and bruised children are made to thank their bullies for the valuable life lessons. 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 158,451st in the world and 624th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -8.31 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
