LeaderCarlita Nom


The United Socialist States of Namwenia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Carlita Nom with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 2.379 billion Namwenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Onaw. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Namwenian economy, worth 371 trillion Curts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 156,215 Curts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, arguments about toilet seats being left up or down get surprisingly heated, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Carlita Nom's questionably sane new coalition partners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Namwenia's national animal is the Manatee, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is None.

Namwenia is ranked 11,042nd in the world and 94th in The Communist Bloc for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 8,482.4 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
