Location: The East Pacific

Regional Influence: Nipper


The Free Land of Nabokov is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 517 million Nabokovians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lolita. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.3%.

The powerhouse Nabokovian economy, worth 31.5 trillion candies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,990 candies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 184,418 per year while the poor average 15,702, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, all fantasy fiction has officially been deemed non-canon, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and carbon-footprint restrictions are making businesses walk. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nabokov's national animal is the rabbit, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Nabokov is ranked 216,684th in the world and 8,736th in The East Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -10.32 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
