Northern Hark Eis Supond

Population1.372 billion

FaithOrder of Horkos


The Blue Line Nation of Northern Hark Eis Supond is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Apollyon with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.372 billion Knights are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashfield. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Northern Hark Eis Supondian economy, worth 161 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 117,992 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jury selection begins with explaining what a jury is, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, and internal strife within the Red Bloc crumbles in the face of fiery rhetoric. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Hark Eis Supond's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Order of Horkos.

Northern Hark Eis Supond is ranked 134,345th in the world and 2,948th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 1.37 billion Capita.
