The Military Martens of Nakarisaune is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.757 billion adorable mustelids 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 1,537 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 111,778 hyenas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back. 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 22,914th in the world and 664th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 220.72 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
