The Holy Empire of North Insomnia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Mad Loser with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.52 billion North Insomnians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Headachent. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient North Insomnian economy, worth 852 trillion piastres a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 188,540 piastres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', and creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Insomnia's national animal is the dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is ourselves.

North Insomnia is ranked 142,390th in the world and 5,625th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 5.59 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
