The Vast Waters of Namakan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.331 billion Namakanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kettle Falls. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Namakanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,376 trillion Greenstones a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 187,786 Greenstones, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surveillance cameras are banned, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, Kettle Falls spends billions upgrading public transport, and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime is totally unknown. Namakan's national animal is the Lake Trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Namakan is ranked 14,307th in the world and 150th in 10000 Islands for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 7,181.57 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
