The Confederation of Nanako Island is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by PM Eloise Quemener with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.814 billion Nanakians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waterpoo. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Nanakian economy, worth 894 trillion Nús a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,411 Nús, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, international tensions are high as Nanako Island threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nanako Island's national animal is the ussuri bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nanako Island is ranked 48,404th in the world and 2nd in OIC for Most Developed, scoring 74.44 on the Human Development Index.
