Northern Nivaria

Population1.108 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Widdaem


The Allied Republics of Northern Nivaria is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Widdaem with a fair hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.108 billion Nivari hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nivington. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nivarian economy, worth 151 trillion bucks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 136,425 bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Workers can choose whether they prefer offices that smell of pungent body odor or whale vomit, companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, and litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Northern Nivaria's national animal is the Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Northern Nivaria is ranked 9,861st in the world and 157th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 89.87 on the Human Development Index.
