Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Omnioppressive Nation of Narshtaph is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Austin Heatherforth with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, ritual sacrifices, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.342 billion Narshtaphians 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Spirituality are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonker. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Narshtaphian economy, worth 112 trillion black warshtaphs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, 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 47,898 black warshtaphs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Perverts across the land rejoice after 'sexual harassment' was recently renamed 'persuasive courting', weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, workers' complaints never reach central planning, and getting a haircut is a punishable offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Narshtaph's national animal is the dark oliphant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Bloody Banner of the Black Violet.

Narshtaph is ranked 110,608th in the world and 143rd in Texas for Most Stationary, with 25.1612338968 Days.
