Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population6.288 billion



The Empire of Nakayo is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Mankai with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.288 billion Nakayans 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saikonotoshi. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nakayan economy, worth 773 trillion Kōkins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,983 Kōkins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mankai wears a chewed-up rubber chicken suit to meet foreign delegates, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, many in Nakayo are born in the purple, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nakayo's national animal is the Magpie, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nakayo is ranked 15,985th in the world and 665th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,936.86 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
