Nyarleth

Population122 million

The Theocracy of Nyarleth is a very large, safe nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 122 million Nyarlethians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality, although Administration, Education, and Defense are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Nyarlethian economy, worth 4.06 trillion ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 33,268 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations, the new Grand Inquisitor of Righteous Scientific Inquiry has ordered a surprising amount of hemlock, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, and neighboring nations are tired of Nyarleth's big fish stories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nyarleth's national animal is the Abino Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Nyarleth is ranked 19,642nd in the world and 1st in Crawling Ascendancy for Best Weather, with 143 Meters Of Sunlight.
