The Lone and Level Sands of Nationstatelandsville is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Dalek with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 6.524 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The City of Troughton. The average income tax rate is 62%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The government is giving peace a chance, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, and Nationstatelandsville's famous countrysides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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the pengo.

Nationstatelandsville is ranked 70th in Ankh Mauta and 110,509th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -4 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
