The United Provinces of Nafgarlund is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Volk Council with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.371 billion Nafgarlundians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alterbrünnen. The average income tax rate is 98%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, the average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Nafgarlund's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Norse Paganism, and its currency is the Mach.

Nafgarlund is ranked 256th in The New Inquisition and 110,073rd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -278 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
