Regional Influence: Sprat

Location: The North Pacific



Population326 million



The Republic of Naalfgarth is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed population of 326 million Naalfgarthians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belror. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Naalfgarthian economy, worth 29.9 trillion Marks a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,811 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, and rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.

Naalfgarth is ranked 226,787th in the world and 8,459th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -248.12 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
