The Quiet Mining Town of Narshe is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Locke with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.93 billion Narsheans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Caves. The average income tax rate is 15.3%.

The all-consuming Narshean economy, worth a remarkable 1,529 trillion Gils a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is 80,773 Gils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Narshe-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, military recruitment numbers are down as citizens object on 'moral grounds', and a major religion has been named as Narshe's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Narshe's national animal is the Frozen esper, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.

Narshe is ranked 100,588th in the world and 1st in World of Ruin for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,291.27 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
