Population4.432 billion

LeaderDaniel Dravot


The Mad NPA Volunteer Piper of Territorio di Qualcuno is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Daniel Dravot with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.432 billion dispersi are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.1%.

The frighteningly efficient disperso economy, worth 974 trillion Nientes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 219,767 Nientes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,389,642 per year while the poor average 14,505, a ratio of 95.8 to 1.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, the government has become increasingly militant, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, and the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Territorio di Qualcuno's national animal is the Boh, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Freemasonry.

Territorio di Qualcuno is ranked 35,643rd in the world and 4th in HC Metalurg for Most Pro-Market, scoring 67.89 on the Rand Index.
