Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend Cards


Population9.057 billion



The Empire of Nakayo is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Mankai with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 9.057 billion Nakayans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saikonotoshi. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Nakayan economy, worth a remarkable 1,277 trillion Kōkins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,014 Kōkins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's stance on marriage is 'Let Nakayans marry themselves', government programs are less "written" and more "plagiarised", a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", and future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nakayo's national animal is the Magpie, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nakayo is ranked 1,853rd in the world and 75th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 4,032.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
