The Federation of Northern Socialist States is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Wilhelm von Potestas with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.171 billion NSS Citizens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potestas. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient NSS Citizenry economy, worth a remarkable 4,963 trillion Federation Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 376,832 Federation Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Books are so highly regarded in Northern Socialist States that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, NSS Citizenry Standard Vodka is the only drink that bars stock, and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Socialist States's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kostromaism.

Northern Socialist States is ranked 276,002nd in the world and 6,706th in Osiris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -36.08 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
