The Empire of Nairland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Exalted Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 5.471 billion Nairlandians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nairland City. The average income tax rate is 32.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nairlandian economy, worth 715 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 an impressive 130,711 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The entire entry for Nairland in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament, every conceivable scenic location has been completely booked by couples desperate to marry, and Nairlandian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nairland's national animal is the Possum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bitcoin Hard Fork.

Nairland is ranked 13,219th in the world and 648th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 4,692.43 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
