Some People in the Himalayas

Population3.591 billion

LeaderPresident Marcus Stacker


The Throwaway Nation of Some People in the Himalayas is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Marcus Stacker with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.591 billion Himalasians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arton. The average income tax rate is 38.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Some People in the Himalayasian economy, worth 460 trillion Palatials a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,243 Palatials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

In pet stores nationwide Bharals are growing in popularity, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", restaurateurs put a lot of effort into persuading customers to accept wafer-thin mints, and EpiPen sales have skyrocketed. Crime is relatively low. Some People in the Himalayas's national animal is the Bharal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Hinduism.

Some People in the Himalayas is ranked 14,119th in the world and 1st in Confederation of the Mediterranean for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,971.09 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
