The Republic of 48 Nimbus is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate population of 1.069 billion 48 Nimbusians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 25.0%.

The 48 Nimbusian economy, worth 47.6 trillion stars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,539 stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned cloudracerball fields, children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, and Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 48 Nimbus's national animal is the cloudracer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

48 Nimbus is ranked 60,739th in the world and 1,096th in the Rejected Realms for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.99 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
