The United Kingdom of Napalini is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Napalan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 826 million Napalinians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Napalinian City. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Napalinian economy, worth 117 trillion Madroes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,017 Madroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, and Information Technology facilities are being turned into unicorn habitats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Napalini's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Napalini is ranked 17,357th in the world and 905th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 68.18 quips per hour.
