The Megacorporate HegemonyŽ of Nargorthia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Grand-CEOŽ Dzekyerkovolayetovich with an iron fist, and renowned for its vat-grown people, fear of technology, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.977 billion Nargorthians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Szhchbuynatroitzrarersk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Nargorthian economy, worth a remarkable 3,737 trillion colds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 249,547 colds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,659,514 per year while the poor average 14,318, a ratio of 115 to 1.

Military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, the Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition, kids only know what plants are because they've seen them on the television, and poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Nargorthia's national animal is the corporate shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Nargorthia is ranked 41,751st in the world and 1,139th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 28.69 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
