The North American Assembly

Population3.57 billion



The United States of The North American Assembly is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ethan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.57 billion Assemblyians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saphire. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming North American Assemblyian economy, worth 368 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,352 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is something rotten in the state of The North American Assembly, criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, the new one Dollar coin also makes a handy throwing-star, and the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The North American Assembly's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The North American Assembly is ranked 217,178th in the world and 5,769th in the West Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -155.38 on the Hayek Index.
