The Guychat Fiefdom of NOrTh pAcIfiC spY is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Gertrude with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, prohibition of alcohol, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.266 billion NOrTh pAcIfiC spYians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Pacific Spying HQ. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient NOrTh pAcIfiC spYian economy, worth a remarkable 5,441 trillion Cookies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 443,645 Cookies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, the military has gone fission for more funding, grannies with arthritic hands work miserably on factory production lines, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. NOrTh pAcIfiC spY's national animal is the Cookie Monster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Gestdom.

NOrTh pAcIfiC spY is ranked 240th in the world and 5th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Black Market, with 9,085 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
