The Moo Flag of Narvatus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, devout population of 8.891 billion Narvatusians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Usorum. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Narvatusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,443 trillion ouncs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 162,307 ouncs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Murderers with law degrees can be seen swinging the gavel in courts, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, immigrants who don't like the taste of Narvatusian Turnip Chips are immediately deported, and Common houscat sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Narvatus's national animal is the common houscat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the holist frdoms.

Narvatus is ranked 174,403rd in the world and 443rd in The Free Nations Region for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -5.29 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
