The United States of Nolandisland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stephen Nolandis with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.194 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kessnolanville. The average income tax rate is 33%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Gambling.
The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, Nolandisland is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nolandisland's national animal is the Okapi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Catholicism, and its currency is the Galleon.
