The Republic of Nambelselzo is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Cassius Mammbel with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.119 billion Nambelselzoans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zelzona. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Nambelselzoan economy, worth 81.6 trillion Nambelzis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 72,924 Nambelzis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, and national park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nambelselzo's national animal is the Liger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Polytheism.

Nambelselzo is ranked 206,916th in the world and 1st in Shermonton for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 48.6 Whatever.
