The Democratic Banana Republic of Negridia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 711 million Negridians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wachootoo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.3%.

The powerhouse Negridian economy, worth 59.9 trillion nigres a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 84,234 nigres, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 323,172 per year while the poor average 15,139, a ratio of 21.3 to 1.

Foreign students are expected to have a Kegmeister Grade Average of 36-24-36 to qualify for university, the derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, and breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Negridia's national animal is the okapi, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Negridia is ranked 30,095th in the world and 13th in Conf of Traditional Socialist Nations for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,126.61 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
