The Holy Empire of North Insomnia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mad Loser with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 2.465 billion North Insomnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Headachent. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient North Insomnian economy, worth 411 trillion piastres a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 166,739 piastres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The horniness of the great-horned dragon is considered a national priority, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and torture is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Insomnia's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is ourselves.

North Insomnia is ranked 156,525th in the world and 7,108th in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 4.04 Prayers Per Hour.
