Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Omnioppressive Nation of Narshtaph is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Austin Heatherforth with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.693 billion Narshtaphians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Spirituality are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonker. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Narshtaphian economy, worth 137 trillion black warshtaphs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 51,173 black warshtaphs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Austin Heatherforth has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, policemen want to put the nation's homosexuals up against a wall, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, and doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion. 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 173,281st in the world and 164th in Texas for Nudest, with 20 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
