The Kingdom of Narsuto is a small, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20 million Narsutoans 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 medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 34.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Narsutoan economy, worth 1.07 trillion kiops 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, broadly diversified black market in Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Retail. 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 53,319 kiops, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, write-in candidate 'Leader Sucks' is perennially popular, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, and some say Leader has gone MAD after authorizing the development of apocalyptic biological weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Narsuto's national animal is the Sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Narsuto is ranked 21,673rd in the world and 814th in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 110.56 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
