The Guychat Fiefdom of NOrTh pAcIfiC spY is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gertrude with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, flagrant waste-dumping, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.204 billion NOrTh pAcIfiC spYians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Pacific Spying HQ. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient NOrTh pAcIfiC spYian economy, worth a remarkable 5,859 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 443,792 Cookies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Big Belly is watching you, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left, and enemy agents are generally eliminated with extreme prejudice. 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 139,213th in the world and 2,769th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 30.06 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
