The Armed Republic of The Greatest Northern Lands is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Jiraph with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 913 million Greatest Northern Landsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Windhelm. The average income tax rate is 41.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Greatest Northern Landsian economy, worth 47.2 trillion Great Northern Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,691 Great Northern Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, Jiraph has just been declared ruler of The Greatest Northern Lands in an international press conference, and voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Greatest Northern Lands's national animal is the Frank, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Greatest Northern Lands is ranked 204,447th in the world and 8th in Democratic Region of The People for Most Beautiful Environments, with 312.07 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
