NSC Potato HQ

Population1.486 billion


The Empire of NSC Potato HQ is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.486 billion NSC Potato HQians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The strong NSC Potato HQian economy, worth 61.2 trillion cards a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. Average income is 41,207 cards, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 265,587 per year while the poor average 2,583, a ratio of 102 to 1.

NSC Potato HQ's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, surveillance cameras are banned, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. NSC Potato HQ's national animal is the legendary, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

NSC Potato HQ is ranked 147,766th in the world and 4th in The Potato Alliance for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 278.16 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
