The Imperial Island Empire State of Nuridia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Empress Ingrid Lamont I with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 9.018 billion Nuridians 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.
The enormous 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 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Nuridian economy, worth 752 trillion perles a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,460 perles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, and Empress Ingrid Lamont I claims to be the epitome of family values. 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.
