The White Crowned Boreal Lights of North Cross is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Søren Sørensen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.936 billion Northmen love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Åbenheim. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Northern economy, worth a remarkable 1,771 trillion kroner a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 298,391 kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, and conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors. Crime is totally unknown. North Cross's national animal is the Troll, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Old Norse Pagan Christianity.

North Cross is ranked 207,560th in the world and 101st in International Democratic Union for Most Avoided, scoring 0.16 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
