The Demarchy of Naessia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Citizens' Jury with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 14.036 billion Naessians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vålen. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Naessian economy, worth a remarkable 1,582 trillion Dalers a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,735 Dalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Swings are now more popular than see-saws in children's playgrounds, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, and hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Naessia's national animal is the Polar Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Naessia is ranked 152,835th in the world and 63rd in Nordic Lands for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.27 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
