The Kingdom of GreatTombOfNazarik is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 758 million GreatTombOfNazarikians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 36.7%.

The strong GreatTombOfNazarikian economy, worth 46.1 trillion Schekels a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,814 Schekels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Rap artists are regularly arrested for promoting extremist groups, citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges, the nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, and loading sixteen tons of laundry gets you another year older and deeper in debt. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. GreatTombOfNazarik's national animal is the Skeleton Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

GreatTombOfNazarik is ranked 204,721st in the world and 9,941st in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -12.39 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
