Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population791 million


The Republic of Navorden is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 791 million Navordenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 23.1%.

The all-consuming Navordenian economy, worth 76.7 trillion Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 97,018 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The Forestry Department has decided you really can't fight fire with fire, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, and multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks. Crime is totally unknown. Navorden's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Navorden is ranked 41,574th in the world and 1,694th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 64 on the Rand Index.
