The Holy Empire of North Insomnia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Mad Loser with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.013 billion North Insomnians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Headachent. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient North Insomnian economy, worth 718 trillion piastres a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 178,935 piastres, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, dessert dishes make up the North Insomnian breakfast menu, and the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Insomnia's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is ourselves.

North Insomnia is ranked 68,178th in the world and 3,166th in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 23.17 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
