LeaderDavid S Pumpkins


The Dictatorship of Nug Life is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by David S Pumpkins with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, compulsory vegetarianism, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.095 billion Nug Lifeans 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, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Spirituality, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Something other than. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Nug Lifean economy, worth 933 trillion Jarvonas 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 227,975 Jarvonas, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", religious classes are compulsory for all school students, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, and citizens know not to ask what their country can do for them but what they can do as chained slaves for their country. Crime is a major problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Nug Life's national animal is the Manatee, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Nug Life is ranked 84,846th in the world and 2,534th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 100.4420190504 Days.
