The United Socialist States of Northen lands is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, enslaved workforce, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 677 million vikings are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Tundra. The average income tax rate is 55.4%.

The sizeable but sluggish Northen landsian economy, worth 21.6 trillion Red coins 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, 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 31,936 Red coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Coastal cities are being moved a dozen miles inland to reduce flooding risk, millions of vikings are excellent swimmers, Vikings are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, and funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northen lands's national animal is the polar bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Northen lands is ranked 101,105th in the world and 3,421st in Osiris for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 770.37 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
