Norna Chitya

Population998 million

CapitalNew Empire
LeaderRich Uncle Pennybags


The Republic of Norna Chitya is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rich Uncle Pennybags with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 998 million Norna Chityans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Empire. The average income tax rate is 6.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Norna Chityan economy, worth 152 trillion baht a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 152,509 baht, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos, the tenet of free speech is held dear, there's a bright dawn ahead for Norna Chitya, and the upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Norna Chitya's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Norna Chitya is ranked 49,588th in the world and 1,450th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 2.8 Bank.
