The Supradictatorial Autocracy of North Horsia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Hevoshullu Suomenhevonen with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.206 billion North Horsians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hevoskulttitila. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming North Horsian economy, worth 283 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 88,560 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Murderers facing life in prison listen to long sermons on positive thinking, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Horsia's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Cosmic Horse.

North Horsia is ranked 12,500th in the world and 30th in The Western Isles for Lowest Crime Rates, with 90.33 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
