The Black Hand of Nod

Population31.538 billion

CapitalNew Cairo
FaithBrotherhood of Nod


The Terrorist Organization of The Black Hand of Nod is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Slavik with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 31.538 billion Black Hand are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Cairo. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient of The Black Hand economy, worth a remarkable 5,275 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,266 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New Cairo's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on of The Black Hand radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, and builders across The Black Hand of Nod are blocked up with orders for new public loos. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Black Hand of Nod's national animal is the scorpion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Brotherhood of Nod.

The Black Hand of Nod is ranked 21,010th in the world and 2nd in Command and Conquer Universe for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,182.77 tourists per hour.
