The Kingdom of Namjyut is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by the AI in my living room with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.941 billion Namjyuts are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The enormous, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Education and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Punyu. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Namjyut economy, worth 881 trillion Yuns a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 178,386 Yuns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,245,729 per year while the poor average 8,815, a ratio of 141 to 1.

Online tourism reviews of Namjyut are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar, Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Namjyut military unleashed its biological weapons, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Namjyut's national animal is the unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Namjyut is ranked 31,559th in the world and 20th in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Most Influential, scoring 947 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
