LeaderMega Mindy


The Hyrule Founder Nation of Ness Snorlaxia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mega Mindy with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 44.847 billion Ness Snorlaxians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Social Policy, Law & Order, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fourside. The average income tax rate is 1.1%.

The very strong Ness Snorlaxian economy, worth a remarkable 7,617 trillion crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 169,855 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, graffiti graces every city's streets, Ness Snorlaxia's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and euthanasia is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ness Snorlaxia's national animal is the charmander, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ness Snorlaxia is ranked 35,956th in the world and 2nd in Hyrule for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 290,252 Standard Monetary Units.
