The Holy Empire of Natarkan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Pogue with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.028 billion Natarkites 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of EthÝs. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Natarkite economy, worth 564 trillion Obsidian Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 112,370 Obsidian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

EthÝs has restaurants serving every meat from aardvark to zebra, the cruise missile launchers on the field hospital roof are purely deterrent in purpose, whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Natarkite Embarrassments, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Natarkan's national animal is the Natarkite Bearded Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Natarkan is ranked 30,481st in the world and 494th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 47.95 quips per hour.
