Regional Influence: Minnow


The Republic of Nellie the Dog is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 213 million Nellie the Dogians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 15.1%.

The Nellie the Dogian economy, worth 11.2 trillion Nellies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 52,606 Nellies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, women don't report crimes to the emergency services for fear of being arrested, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and nocturnal light pollution is mostly blue. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nellie the Dog's national animal is the NELLIE, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Nellie the Dog is ranked 111,307th in the world and 4,300th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,238.12 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.

Most Average: 390th in the region
