The Republic of North West Sutherland is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 532 million Sutherlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Star City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.1%.

The frighteningly efficient North West Sutherlandian economy, worth 68.9 trillion stonks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 129,523 stonks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 823,681 per year while the poor average 8,420, a ratio of 97.8 to 1.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", lottery winners spend most of their money on security, and billions are being spent on a new island airport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North West Sutherland's national animal is the rat bastard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

North West Sutherland is ranked 25,336th in the world and 982nd in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 33.98 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
