The Imperial Island Empire State of Nuridia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Ingrid Lamont I with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.238 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 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Nuridian economy, worth 566 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 common. Average income is 78,326 perles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, the government has taken a 'sort it out yourselves' approach to fighting malaria, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. 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.
