The Commonwealth of Northern Socialist Council Republics is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by First Speaker Russ with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.869 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, outspoken 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 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern economy, worth 668 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 and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 172,769 Commonwealth kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, the Great Northern Melting Pot boils out ethnic heritage, and diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm. Crime is totally unknown. Northern Socialist Council Republics's national animal is the swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern Socialist Council Republics is ranked 3,620th in the world and 199th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 620.19 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
