The Union of Socialist Republics of Northern Overture is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Secretary of State Sovetsky Soyuz with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.449 billion Overtureans 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moskva. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Overturean economy, worth 271 trillion Noneuropean Kronees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 78,691 Noneuropean Kronees, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, graffiti graces every city's streets, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Overture's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northern Overture is ranked 59,528th in the world and 7th in Noneuropean Union for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 83.56 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
