Northern Socialist Council Republics

Population1.589 billion

LeaderFirst Speaker Russ

CurrencyCommonwealth krona

The Commonwealth of Northern Socialist Council Republics is a massive, safe nation, ruled by First Speaker Russ with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.589 billion Northerners are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soundstead. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern economy, worth 227 trillion Commonwealth kronor 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 143,162 Commonwealth kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies", more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, if there's something strange in your neighborhood you call Brancaland, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Socialist Council Republics's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northern Socialist Council Republics is ranked 224,510th in the world and 8,832nd in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 20.32 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
