The Royal Archipelago of Nuridia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Yolande with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and museums and concert halls. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.736 billion Nuridians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thule. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Nuridian economy, worth 519 trillion perles a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,168 perles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Nuridia, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nuridia's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
