Animalrat bastard

The Republic of North West Sutherland is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.931 billion Sutherlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Star City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.6%.

The frighteningly efficient North West Sutherlandian economy, worth 238 trillion stonks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 123,340 stonks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 608,219 per year while the poor average 14,250, a ratio of 42.7 to 1.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, petitioners are increasingly resorting to climbing through Leader's window to draw attention to their issues, advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Leader's most personal functions, and taking a walk on the wild side is punishable by death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North West Sutherland's national animal is the rat bastard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

North West Sutherland is ranked 42,219th in the world and 1,248th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 3.65 Bank.
