LeaderThe Spanner


The Free Buffet of Nukls-Andwicz is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Spanner with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 26.483 billion Nukls-Andwiczians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shytehaus-on-Sea. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Nukls-Andwiczian economy, worth an astonishing 15,128 trillion pies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is a breathtaking 571,249 pies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,155,072 per year while the poor average 105,471, a ratio of 20.4 to 1.

The nation refuses to provide international aid, mournful opera fans place bouquets of roses at a 3000 capacity parking lot, concert pianists lie about their occupation to avoid ridicule, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Nukls-Andwicz's national animal is the weasel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is peischism.

Nukls-Andwicz is ranked 153,669th in the world and 880th in Europe for Most Income Equality, scoring 4.89 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
