Northern Nivaria

Population2.806 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Widdeam


The United Republics of Northern Nivaria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Widdeam with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.806 billion Nivari hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nivington. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Nivarian economy, worth 476 trillion bucks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 169,847 bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', escalators are avoided at all costs, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Northern Nivaria's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Northern Nivaria is ranked 242,070th in the world and 998th in 10000 Islands for Most Primitive, scoring -587.86 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
