The Republic of Northbergen is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The hard-working, democratic population of 645 million Northbergenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 7.4%.

The strong Northbergenian economy, worth 54.0 trillion boxes of ziti a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 83,709 boxes of ziti, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, anyone interested in the stock market is investigated, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's. Crime is totally unknown. Northbergen's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northbergen is ranked 16,218th in the world and 403rd in the South Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 3 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
