The Democratic Republic of Namtane is a large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 56 million Namtaneans 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 medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Healthcare, Education, and Spirituality are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 39.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Namtanean economy, worth 1.60 trillion nams 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. 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 28,594 nams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, every week is blindness awareness week, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and Namtane's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Namtane's national animal is the chimpanzee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Namtane is ranked 207,813th in the world and 282nd in Refugia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -5.2 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
