Northern Nivaria

Population1.567 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Widdaem


The United Republics of Northern Nivaria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Widdaem with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.567 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nivington. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nivarian economy, worth 240 trillion bucks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,484 bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, political detractors refer to Prime Minister Widdaem as 'that Bigtopian puppet', anyone can get ahead in life if they want to, and burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms. Crime 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 199,441st in the world and 1,229th in 10000 Islands for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -7.84 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
