The Small Indomitable Tribe of North Sentinel Island is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Chief Spehar Ch'kher with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, absence of drug laws, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.533 billion Sentinelese are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of A Scattering of Grass Huts. The average income tax rate is 65.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sentinelese economy, worth 125 trillion Spears a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is 35,480 Spears, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

A new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorus, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, foreigners are treated with great suspicion, and baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. North Sentinel Island's national animal is the Missionary, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Animism.

North Sentinel Island is ranked 2,041st in the world and 4th in India for Nudest, with 1,208.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
