Socialist Northern Republics

Population774 million


The Confederacy of Socialist Northern Republics is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 774 million ConFeds are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 55.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Confedrate economy, worth 19.6 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is 25,343 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, cars are banned, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Northern Republics's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Socialist Northern Republics is ranked 66,017th in the world and 3,190th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 393.19 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
