Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population2.955 billion



The Republic of Naalfgarth is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Volksfühlei with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, vat-grown people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.955 billion Naalfgarthians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belror. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Naalfgarthian economy, worth 516 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 quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 174,644 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, and buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Naalfgarth's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Naalfgarth is ranked 95,626th in the world and 4,917th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.5 percentage of bribes refused.
