NSC Potato HQ

Population1.387 billion


The Empire of NSC Potato HQ is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.387 billion NSC Potato HQians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The strong NSC Potato HQian economy, worth 57.2 trillion cards a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. Average income is 41,207 cards, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 265,587 per year while the poor average 2,583, a ratio of 102 to 1.

NSC Potato HQ's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, surveillance cameras are banned, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. NSC Potato HQ's national animal is the legendary, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

NSC Potato HQ is ranked 142,239th in the world and 7th in The Potato Alliance for Highest Economic Output, with 57.2 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
