The Uenunist Rertareun of North Essentei
“Defences are stronger than offences, this will help!”

Regional Influence: Nipper
The Uenunist Rertareun of North Essentei is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Esnei Perny with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 4.871 billion Essentans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Entely. The average income tax rate is 28.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The North Essenteian economy, worth 207 trillion Emlens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,674 Emlens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Everyone suspects that everyone else is a terrorist, gun ownership is compulsory, a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, and babies living in poverty are told to take responsibility for their own fortunes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Essentei's national animal is the The Legendary Pingas Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Uenuisim ideology.
