The Imperial Island Empire State of Nuridia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Ingrid Lamont I with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.085 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 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 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Nuridian economy, worth 650 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 80,510 perles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government has taken a 'sort it out yourselves' approach to fighting malaria, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons'. 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.
Nuridia is ranked 239th in 10000 Islands and 15,554th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 206 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
