LeaderThe Spanner


The Free Buffet of Nukls-Andwicz is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Spanner with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 30.62 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 72.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Nukls-Andwiczian economy, worth an astonishing 18,219 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 595,011 pies, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,522,680 per year while the poor average 46,377, a ratio of 76.0 to 1.

Mournful opera fans place bouquets of roses at a 3000 capacity parking lot, concert pianists lie about their occupation to avoid ridicule, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations. 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 241,311th in the world and 1,281st in Europe for Nicest Citizens, with 0.06 average smiles per day.
