The Most Serene Republic of North Southumberland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rulerman The Wise with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.697 billion North Southers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Southumberland City. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient North Southish economy, worth a remarkable 4,508 trillion Floogles a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 241,139 Floogles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The official North Southish Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Southumberland's national animal is the Wombat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

North Southumberland is ranked 782nd in the world and 18th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 98.52 on the Human Development Index.
