The Golden Union of The Greenlandic North is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Carry Pillow with a fair hand, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, infamous sell-swords, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.075 billion Northern Greenlandic's hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Defense, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Nuuk. The average income tax rate is 68.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Greenlandic economy, worth 571 trillion Ices a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 275,308 Ices, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, foreign despots proudly bandstand on Northern Greenlandic airwaves, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, and vote-counting is replacing kitchen patrol as the least glamorous army work. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Greenlandic North's national animal is the Lemming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cruligts.

The Greenlandic North is ranked 26,853rd in the world and 9th in Wintreath for Most Extreme, scoring 35.01 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
