Northern Carpathian Union

The Federal Republic of Northern Carpathian Union is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 469 million Northern Carpathians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 6.9%.

The Northern Carpathian economy, worth 22.0 trillion Silver Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 46,909 Silver Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Northern Carpathian Moonshine", and justice is available only to those who can afford its price tag. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Northern Carpathian Union's national animal is the Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northern Carpathian Union is ranked 231,460th in the world and 16th in SolarFlare for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -4.47 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
