The Northern Southwest

Population168 million

The People's Republic of The Northern Southwest is a very large, safe nation, notable for its digital currency, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 168 million northern southwesterns are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 61.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Northern Southwestian economy, worth 3.89 trillion diskettes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 23,156 diskettes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, most people learn to drive on crash courses, Northern Southwestian politicians are often described as having more style than substance, and the national symbol of The Northern Southwest is now always featured on a skewer. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Northern Southwest's national animal is the alien, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Northern Southwest is ranked 93,252nd in the world and 2nd in Green Hill Zone for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,416.42 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
