The Holy Jamhori of Nociav
“Ave Ad Pacificus Oriental”

Location: The East Pacific
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Holy Jamhori of Nociav is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zarbh with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.406 billion Nocis are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiyab. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Noci economy, worth 203 trillion Zars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 144,953 Zars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,165,547 per year while the poor average 4,134, a ratio of 281 to 1.
Gene-engineered sewerjacks don't smell but they do stink, new treatments are rejected if they cannot be explained using only one-syllable words, women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", and the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nociav's national animal is the Argha, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Avaska.
