The Cold Northern North

Population723 million

The Kingdom of The Cold Northern North is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, vat-grown people, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 723 million Frozen Fockazzes are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of WinterHell. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cold Northern Northian economy, worth 91.2 trillion Northern Dollars 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 Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 126,080 Northern Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, fashion models are guaranteed to be 100% genuinely as anorexic as they appear on magazine covers, squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Cold Northern North's national animal is the Golden Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Cold Northern North is ranked 26,783rd in the world and 1,396th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 77.5 on the Human Development Index.
