The White Crowned Boreal Lights of North Cross is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Søren Sørensen with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.56 billion Northmen 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Åbenheim. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Northern economy, worth a remarkable 2,510 trillion kroner a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 332,060 kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, and clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions. Crime is totally unknown. North Cross's national animal is the Troll, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Old Norse Pagan Christianity.

North Cross is ranked 14,545th in the world and 9th in International Democratic Union for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 6,304.09 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
