The Nakarisauce of Nakarisaune is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 23.112 billion adorable authors 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 prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poppaea Maxima. The average income tax rate is 76.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Nakarisaunean economy, worth a remarkable 2,848 trillion hyenas 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Book Publishing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Gambling. 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 123,230 hyenas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, the nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams, Leader is convinced that other nations can simply be "junked" (Nakarisaune has found 2 easter eggs), and criticism of Leader is considered unpatriotic. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Nakarisaune's national animal is the aardvark, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nakarisaune is ranked 212,028th in the world and 267th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 29,328.95 Standard Monetary Units.
