LeaderDavid S Pumpkins


The Dictatorship of Nug Life is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by David S Pumpkins with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.844 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, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Something other than. The average income tax rate is 46.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nug Lifean economy, worth 593 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, quite specialized 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 208,551 Jarvonas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Heroes long thought dead are promptly killed upon their return, decreased demand for toilets is saving the prison service a lot of money, in its new More is More campaign the government advertises obese men and women posing coquettishly with baked goods to spare their blushes, and recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for David S Pumpkins's eyes only'. Crime is pervasive, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Nug Life's national animal is the Manatee, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
