Location: Lazarus

Regional Influence: Sprat


The Republic of Kutaka Niwatari is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.391 billion Kutaka Niwatarians 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 tiny, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.5%.

The strong Kutaka Niwatarian economy, worth 320 trillion ergergs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 50,076 ergergs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 259,698 per year while the poor average 5,231, a ratio of 49.6 to 1.

The media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash", panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, and travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kutaka Niwatari's national animal is the egergerg, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Kutaka Niwatari is ranked 74,296th in the world and 3,038th in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
