Canada is similar to Narwhalandia in many ways. The main way is that they have a federation and representative democracy. However, Canada has a parliament, while Narwhalandia uses a two-house system. Also, Canada has a market economy while Narwhalandia has a mixed one, but they are both strong economies. The way jobs work is also different because of the economies. Canadians also speak English (as well as French, which Narwhalandians don’t), and also has a mix of cultures. People come to Canada from a variety of different countries, and i is therefore a mix. Table manners in Canada are also very alike, with rules like no elbow on the table. One of the main things with appearance that is similar is the appearance of them. Canadian women are unlikely to wear jewelry or makeup, wich is much like Narwhalandians. The climate of Canada is also much like that of Narwhalandia, considering that they are neighboring states. One of the main differences is, of course, religion. While about 70% of Canada is made up of Christians, about 97% of Narwhalandia is made up of Narwhalists, assuming that there aren’t many religious crossovers. Also, Canadians use up resources more quickly than Narwhalandians. These are some of the many similarities and differences between Canada and Narwhalandia.
Please note: The United States is most similar but I’m not allowed to write about that.
Narwhalandia’s economy provides citizens with the freedom in marketing and sales that they want, but at the same time restricting them so that they have what they need. The balance between market and command economy is in the middle. The people control most of the products that are sold with the system of supply and demand, and have the independence to make a business freely. This allows people to purchase the goods that they want and not be restricted to a certain amount of, say, bacon pieces, per day. Also, because businesses strive to please, new inventions and better products will be produced in greater quantities, not only providing the citizens with what they want, but also improving the country’s image. However, the reason the government controls part of the economy is because Narwhalandia wants its people to live wanted, good, and healthy lives. So the government allows the independent businesses to sell their own goods, as long as they are convey good messages. For example, snow globes and chocolate mustaches are allowed to be sold, but drugs and anything advertising eating narwhals (such as narwhal gummies) are not. This lets the people have the “demanded” products, but keeps the environment safe. Also, Narwhalandia doesn’t want homeless and unemployed people, or citizens who take part-time jobs because there weren’t any openings for their dream jobs that they’re excellent at. So when the people graduate from their standard elementary school, they take a test finding jobs they’ll be talented at and enjoy, giving them something that will produce something wanted by the worker and others. Jobs that aren’t wanted are given to the people of Insula who immigrate to Narwhalandia. They are given the money that the employer decides on, not the government, but the government does make sure that they earn enough to support themselves and their family. Also, they have a maximum money limit so that their currency (the Narwhalandian Meep)’s value stays high. All of this gives the citizens of Narwhalandia the products they want and their necessities.
Narwhalandia’s government and its citizens get along very well. It’s government systems: a two-house authority and federation allow the power to rest in both the local people and governments. This makes both of them feel as if they have a fair say in things and keeps them balanced. The national government controls national matters, such as currency. wars, and trade; while the local governments control things such as licenses, health, and can have power over most things as long as they don’t go against the national government. Both of these governments have the ability to set up courts, collect taxes, and make laws. Also, the two-house legislature makes sure that the laws chosen are good. The citizens are allowed to submit ideas for laws that they want, and the representatives they choose decide whether these ideas should be made into laws or not, giving power to the citizens.
The people of Narwhalandia have the rights to have free speech, religion, and press. The right to bear arms is allowed in three of the five provinces: Unicornia, Cetacea, and Bubbleland. Coralia and Kohola do not have the absolute right to bear arms because they barely have any threats, but in some areas, citizens are allowed this right. The right to vote over the age of thirteen and the right to be treated fairly are all also rights that are seen in Narwhalandia. There are many other rights, all of which are written in the Independent Narwhal.
Narwhalandia uses socialism for its economy. The government’s regulations keep the people at a balance of nearly no unemployed, homeless, or incredibly wealthy people. However, the market and law of supply and demand are also extremely important for them. Many businesses are in their own economic control when it comes to selling goods. The strength of this nation comes from the ability to sell what is wanted but at the same time for most people to have equal living rights. The decisions of the people: where they live, what they live in, what they eat, etc., are not regulated by the government, only the minimum and maximum amounts of money that citizens may have, to ensure that everyone in Narwhalandia lives a fairly good life and they aren’t in meager conditions. This state also allows its people to have more freedom in the jobs they like and are good at, another item regulated mainly by the government and not the businesses. Basically, the government controls the needed items: shelter, jobs, food… and the businesses the rest. The currency of Narwhalandia is the Narwhalandian Meep. Citizens take a test when finishing grade school to determine a job that they will enjoy, be good at, and will help the country.

Narwhalandia is a federation with a two-house system. The five provinces have their own two-house systems for choosing laws, as does the national government. Citizens at the age of 13 are allowed to vote for representatives and their executive branch member (called the Big Fish [currently Moana Nalu]). Big Fish elections are held every 5 years. The national government’s two houses are the Monodon (50 members [10 from each province] holding 2 year terms) and the Monoceros (10 members [chosen nationally] who hold their positions for 5 year terms). The members are chosen at scattered times so there are new and veteran members. The major political parties are the Narwhalians and the Sea Unicorns. Smaller political parties also exist. The Judicial branch’s highest court, the Magna Iuxta, has its members chosen by the Big Fish and the Monoceros branch.
