LeaderSnowball The Almighty Penguin


The Nyootopia of Southern Noot Yrok is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Snowball The Almighty Penguin with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.996 billion Nyooters enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nyootopolis. The average income tax rate is 70.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Nyorkish economy, worth 297 trillion Snyoots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 149,049 Snyoots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and scientists spend more time enduring government inspections than they do on actual science. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Noot Yrok's national animal is the Snoot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nootism.

Southern Noot Yrok is ranked 43,551st in the world and 42nd in The United Federations for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,670.13 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
