The Excellence of North Happy Land is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, ritual sacrifices, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.288 billion Happy Citizens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Happy City. The average income tax rate is 84.4%.

The thriving North Happy Landian economy, worth 920 trillion Happy Dollars 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. 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 146,353 Happy Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The term "Native Happy Citizen" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, it's a hard-knock life for the orphans doing factory work for a pittance, the first test of a good kindergartener is the quality of the sponge-baths they give, and cubicles often double as graves as citizens literally work themselves to death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. North Happy Land's national animal is the Clownfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

North Happy Land is ranked 162,085th in the world and 7,039th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6.16 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
