The Matriarchy of Mother Nurture is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Primordial with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.264 billion Nurturers are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Environment, with Administration, Welfare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Defense and Education receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Primeval. The average income tax rate is 59.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Nurturing economy, worth 17.3 trillion Leaves a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 13,658 Leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning, and genetic research has been halted. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mother Nurture's national animal is the Mother Hen, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mother Nurture is ranked 288th in the world and 3rd in Refugia for Most Primitive, scoring 396.84 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
