Nord Botten

Population7.323 billion



The Free Land of Nord Botten is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 7.323 billion Nord Bottenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norden. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Nord Bottenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,346 trillion marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 183,865 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, and stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nord Botten's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nord Botten is ranked 3,057th in the world and 173rd in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.17 Years.
