The Chaotic Pocket Dimension of Naggoroth is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Discord with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.082 billion Naggorothians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, although Spirituality, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Naggoroth. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Naggorothian economy, worth a remarkable 2,912 trillion Twisted Bits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 241,025 Twisted Bits, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Distant and obscure male relatives succeed to the Naggorothian throne, failure to pay the thrice-daily homage to the divine Discord is punishable by death, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, and prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Naggoroth's national animal is the Cotton Candy Cloud, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Magnificent Rhetoric of Discord.

Naggoroth is ranked 168,559th in the world and 167th in The Alliance of Dictators for Smartest Citizens, with 0.31 Quips Per Hour.
