The Arctic Unity Party

The Regional Branch of The Arctic Unity Party is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 1.226 billion Arctic Unity Partyians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 51.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Arctic Unity Partyian economy, worth 24.1 trillion Polar Crowns a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 19,654 Polar Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The right to free speech is being drastically curtailed, vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, the government is often referred to as "the biggest drug dealer in the nation", and an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Arctic Unity Party's national animal is the Polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Arctic Unity Party is ranked 209,128th in the world and 11th in The Arctic for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -8.25 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
