The Kingdom of -The North- is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Stark with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.55 billion Northerners are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winterfell. The average income tax rate is 29.7%.

The Northerner economy, worth 432 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,488 Gold Dragons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy, disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Northerners's kindness, and hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -The North-'s national animal is the Direwolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Old Gods.

-The North- is ranked 128,105th in the world and 5,045th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 573.49 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
