The United Socialist States of Namwenia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Carlita Nom with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.32 billion Namwenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Onaw. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Namwenian economy, worth 609 trillion Curts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 183,562 Curts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', and the Namwenian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Namwenia's national animal is the Manatee, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is None.

Namwenia is ranked 270,942nd in the world and 666th in The Communist Bloc for Most Pro-Market, scoring -77.78 on the Rand Index.
