Nordindris Shy

Population12.891 billion

Animalbird of paradise

The Republic of Nordindris Shy is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 12.891 billion Nordindris Shyians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 38.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Nordindris Shyian economy, worth 134 trillion Coins 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, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. 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 10,438 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nordindris Shy's national animal is the bird of paradise.

Nordindris Shy is ranked 253,032nd in the world and 2nd in The plaza for Smartest Citizens, with 0.99 quips per hour.
