Northern Maria

Population115 million


The Kingdom of Northern Maria is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 115 million Northern Marians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 12.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Northern Marian economy, worth 5.49 trillion lire a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 47,762 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, euthanasia is legal, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and the roar of the Niagara 3000 mega-loo can be heard several blocks away. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Maria's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northern Maria is ranked 205,203rd in the world and 5,475th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 115 million Capita.
