North Happy Land

The Excellence of North Happy Land is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, avowedly heterosexual populace, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.046 billion Happy Citizens 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Happy City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.6%.

The thriving North Happy Landian economy, worth 891 trillion Happy 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an impressive 147,484 Happy Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 606,561 per year while the poor average 23,643, a ratio of 25.7 to 1.

Tours to see the 'wild men of the mountains' are popular with tourists from the big cities, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, and most people think algebra is something a mermaid wears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. North Happy Land's national animal is the Clownfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

North Happy Land is ranked 204,836th in the world and 10,133rd in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 50.83 Years.
