Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Allmighty Nak Nakian Colony of Techno is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Allmighty Nak Nak with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.781 billion NakNakians 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NakNakdam. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Technoan economy, worth an astonishing 24,514 trillion Naks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 771,357 Naks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,822,787 per year while the poor average 52,447, a ratio of 92.0 to 1.

The government has certified several glow-in-the-dark athletes as drug free, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, and no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police. 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. Techno's national animal is the Nakster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is NakNakism.

Techno is ranked 10,815th in the world and 9th in Wysteria for Most Extreme, scoring 34.15 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
