The Queen's State of Cardinal North

Location: The Six Counties of Ulster

Regional Influence: Truckler


The Queen's State of Cardinal North is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.152 billion Cardinal Northians 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Cardinal Northian economy, worth 34.5 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 4,230 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nudity is frowned upon, elections have been outlawed, and TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cardinal North's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cardinal North is ranked 108,138th in the world and 3rd in The Six Counties of Ulster for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 15.64 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
