North Insomnia

Population4.24 billion

LeaderMad Loser


The Holy Empire of North Insomnia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mad Loser with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.24 billion North Insomnians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Headachent. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient North Insomnian economy, worth 780 trillion piastres a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 184,054 piastres, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and people talk about things being better when men were men. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Insomnia's national animal is the dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is ourselves.

North Insomnia is ranked 202,774th in the world and 7,966th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -17.78 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
