Arctic Coalition

Population3.896 billion

LeaderLars Larson


The United Socialist States of Arctic Coalition is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lars Larson with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.896 billion Arcticans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baffin. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arctican economy, worth 405 trillion Credits 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 103,959 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The children of Arctic Coalition are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, and battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arctic Coalition's national animal is the Caribou, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arctic Coalition is ranked 15,315th in the world and 268th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 87.03 on the Human Development Index.
