The New Northern Empire

The Empire of The New Northern Empire is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 854 million New Northern Empireans 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 medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norden. The average income tax rate is 32.8%.

The New Northern Empirean economy, worth 51.3 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,092 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, and school children are forced to sing the national anthem every morning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Northern Empire's national animal is the Grizzly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The New Northern Empire is ranked 130,064th in the world and 21st in Ascenthia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 56.63 on the Hayek Index.
