LeaderDavid S Pumpkins


The Dictatorship of Nug Life is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by David S Pumpkins with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.307 billion Nug Lifeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Spirituality, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Something other than. The average income tax rate is 55.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Nug Lifean economy, worth 986 trillion Jarvonas 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 229,156 Jarvonas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Religious classes are compulsory for all school students, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, citizens know not to ask what their country can do for them but what they can do as chained slaves for their country, and every worker receives exactly the same pay regardless of productivity. Crime is a major problem. Nug Life's national animal is the Manatee, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Nug Life is ranked 1,012th in the world and 43rd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 10,873.17 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
