LeaderDavid S Pumpkins


The Dictatorship of Nug Life is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by David S Pumpkins with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.247 billion Nug Lifeans 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 is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Something other than. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Nug Lifean economy, worth 974 trillion Jarvonas 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 amazing 229,403 Jarvonas, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Religious classes are compulsory for all school students, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, citizens know not to ask what their country can do for them but what they can do as chained slaves for their country, and every worker receives exactly the same pay regardless of productivity. Crime is a major problem. Nug Life's national animal is the Manatee, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Nug Life is ranked 172,809th in the world and 7,597th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 19.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
