Nord Botten

Population7.571 billion



The Free Land of Nord Botten is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 7.571 billion Nord Bottenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norden. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Nord Bottenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,412 trillion marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 186,605 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, economists speak of trusting in the Tao of Free Market Capitalism, drones are unable to lift the weight of their accompanying paperwork, and Norden Preparatory School for the Exceedingly Wealthy's basketball team is having a few off-years. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nord Botten's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nord Botten is ranked 75,906th in the world and 3,254th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,916.07 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
