The Democratic Republic of Negridia is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 168 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, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.9%.

The powerhouse Negridian economy, worth 13.4 trillion nigres a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 79,755 nigres, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 302,730 per year while the poor average 14,582, a ratio of 20.8 to 1.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Okapi Lasagne is a hit, dining out often involves okapis on the plate no matter what you order, and Negridia City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Negridia's national animal is the okapi, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Negridia is ranked 149,303rd in the world and 107th in Conf of Traditional Socialist Nations for Most Average, scoring 26.84 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
