|Animal||Natarkite Bearded Vulture|
The Holy Empire of Natarkan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Pogue with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, aversion to nipples, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.017 billion Natarkites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ethøs. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Natarkite economy, worth 563 trillion Obsidian Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 112,370 Obsidian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Ethøs has restaurants serving every meat from aardvark to zebra, the cruise missile launchers on the field hospital roof are purely deterrent in purpose, whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Natarkite Embarrassments, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Natarkan's national animal is the Natarkite Bearded Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.
