The Armed Republic of Narinoland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Latorre with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.843 billion narineans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mussa. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient narinean economy, worth 794 trillion Maccas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,281 Maccas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, school football matches are usually five-a-side, and defense lawyers often argue there's no proof murder victims weren't vampires. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Narinoland's national animal is the goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Narinoland is ranked 227,035th in the world and 7,462nd in The East Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -248.92 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
