Indri Cays

Population848 million

LeaderEmperor Gary the first


The Empire of Indri Cays is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Gary the first with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 848 million Indri Caysians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arg. The average income tax rate is 55.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Indri Caysian economy, worth 94.8 trillion drognas a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,830 drognas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The national symbol of Indri Cays is now always featured on a skewer, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Indri Cays, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Indri Cays's national animal is the aspidistra, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Indri Cays is ranked 161,493rd in the world and 6,748th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 57 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
