Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Unproven


The Commonwealth of North Elen is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 209 million North Elenians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 18.5%.

The North Elenian economy, worth 8.36 trillion bitcoins a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is 40,000 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", ignorance is considered a politically desirable quality, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, and dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines'. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Elen's national animal is the jackelope.

North Elen is ranked 54,330th in the world and 2,298th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 5.22 bananas ingested per day.
