Pax Nerdvana

Population6.623 billion

LeaderSky Thunder


The Planetary Landmass of Pax Nerdvana is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sky Thunder with an even hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.623 billion Pax Nerdvanans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NORAD. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pax Nerdvanan economy, worth a remarkable 1,370 trillion Shanixes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 206,903 Shanixes, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

The Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and schoolchildren must pass a six-month Ethics and Safety Committee Assessment before they are allowed to mix baking soda and vinegar. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pax Nerdvana's national animal is the Rancor, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Pax Nerdvana is ranked 11,487th in the world and 2nd in Rogue CONclave for Highest Economic Output, with 1,370 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
