The Guychat Fiefdom of NOrTh pAcIfiC spY is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gertrude with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.175 billion NOrTh pAcIfiC spieses 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Pacific Spying HQ. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient NOrTh pAcIfiC spYian economy, worth a remarkable 7,311 trillion Cookies 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 an amazing 452,018 Cookies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, military spending recently hit a new high, it's rare to find an unchewed pencil, and environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. NOrTh pAcIfiC spY's national animal is the Cookie Monster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Gestdom.

NOrTh pAcIfiC spY is ranked 4,317th in the world and 128th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 696,240 Standard Monetary Units.
