The United Socialist Barangays of Nangka is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Nangka Directory with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.513 billion Nangkans 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, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Elena Poblacion. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Nangkan economy, worth 642 trillion Nangkan pesos 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. Average income is 98,677 Nangkan pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, abattoirs are struggling with the directive to 'wait until the animal dies of a ripe old age', the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and candidates make campaign speeches at the funerals of former rivals. Crime is totally unknown. Nangka's national animal is the Nangka Best Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of the Worker.

Nangka is ranked 18,577th in the world and 38th in Refugia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 271.29 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
