The Joyful Tourist of Nakarisaune is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.334 billion Hyenaeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poppaea Maxima. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Nakarisaunean economy, worth a remarkable 1,496 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, highly 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 112,221 hyenas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Workers' complaints never reach central planning, hairdressers are forced to use all the tricks of the trade after citizens became required to wear helmets at all times, manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job, and there is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Nakarisaunean grocery store. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, 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 156,780th in the world and 6,940th in the South Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
