The Kingdom of Nordrerike
“Together we stay warm”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Kingdom of Nordrerike is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its fear of technology, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 298 million Norikans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crown. The average income tax rate is 56.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Nordrerikean economy, worth 10.8 trillion Hugs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,275 Hugs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
College athletes are arrested for selling lemonade, N-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, and the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nordrerike's national animal is the Muskox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
