The Tater Nuker-isaune of Nakarisaune is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its state-planned economy, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.262 billion adorable authors enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poppaea Maxima. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nakarisaunean economy, worth a remarkable 2,217 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, Information Technology, Tourism, 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 121,405 hyenas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, marine biology students are shocked to discover that a whale is a mammal, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse. 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 208,812th in the world and 6,970th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -6.48 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
