LeaderThe Allmighty Nak Nak


The Allmighty Power of Nak nak is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Allmighty Nak Nak with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, ritual sacrifices, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 35.237 billion Nak Nakians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized individuals is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NakNakdam. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Nak nakian economy, worth an astonishing 29,662 trillion Naks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 841,813 Naks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,263,299 per year while the poor average 57,237, a ratio of 92.0 to 1.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, the only way to escape lengthy prison terms is in a body bag, deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nak nak's national animal is the Nakster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is NakNakism.

Nak nak is ranked 12th in the world and 6th in Wysteria for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 99.46 Workforce Participation Rate.
