The Federal Kingdom of Nardin is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Stanislav III av Krajik with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, smutty television, and zero percent divorce rate. The devout population of 18.721 billion Nardiniks have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krajik. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nardinik economy, worth a remarkable 1,911 trillion Nardinik thalers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,099 Nardinik thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, the government puts forth the claim that harming young girls is wrong, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and foreign leaders are advising that King Stanislav III av Krajik's letters must have gotten lost in the mail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nardin's national animal is the Skijic falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Nardinik Orthodoxy.

Nardin is ranked 407th in the world and 24th in Europe for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 288 valid endorsements.
