The Glorious Kingdom of North Bernia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 693 million North Bernians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Garreg Mach. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming North Bernian economy, worth 80.4 trillion Bernie Badges 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 impressive 116,070 Bernie Badges, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
The people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Bunnyball fields, and hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Bernia's national animal is the Bunny, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
