The Sparkling Waters of Namakan is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.093 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, outspoken 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 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Namakanian economy, worth 843 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 165,567 Greenstones, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is known as the cheapskates of 10000 Islands, the children of Namakan are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime is totally unknown. Namakan's national animal is the Lake Trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Namakan is ranked 52,739th in the world and 162nd in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 30.22 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
