The Hydrarian Empire of Northern Scovia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Sidney Hydraria with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 7.4 billion Northern Scovians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hydraria. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Scovian economy, worth 717 trillion Reichmarks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,959 Reichmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, one does not simply walk into the tundra, and the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Scovia's national animal is the Austrian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Northern Scovia is ranked 6,649th in the world and 334th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13,797.03 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
