Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend Cards


Population8.179 billion



The Empire of Nakayo is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Mankai with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate population of 8.179 billion Nakayans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saikonotoshi. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Nakayan economy, worth a remarkable 1,159 trillion Kōkins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,719 Kōkins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBN Governor goes house hunting, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nakayo's national animal is the Magpie, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nakayo is ranked 3,349th in the world and 186th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.01 Years.
