The Armed Republic of Nazten is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 673 million Naztenians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.0%.

The powerhouse Naztenian economy, worth 44.9 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 66,685 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 244,284 per year while the poor average 12,897, a ratio of 18.9 to 1.

Octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, birth rates have hit an all-time low, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, and evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Nazten's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Nazten is ranked 125,799th in the world and 14th in Democracy for Most Extreme, scoring 16.72 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
