The Lone and Level Sands of Nationstatelandsville is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dean Pelton with a fair hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.178 billion Tricker Archetypes 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The City of Troughton. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tricksy economy, worth 441 trillion pengoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,960 pengoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government is giving peace a chance, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, and Nationstatelandsville's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nationstatelandsville's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nationstatelandsville is ranked 30th in Ankh Mauta and 77,527th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.156 Stalins.
