The Commonwealth of Narland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Constitution and The Common Law with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.696 billion Narlandren live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Narpolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The all-consuming Narlandish economy, worth a remarkable 2,457 trillion Narland Currencieses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 131,435 Narland Currencieses, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 612,043 per year while the poor average 16,928, a ratio of 36.2 to 1.

The government has completely eliminated all childcare programs, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, ironic death by tasering is on the rise amongst door-to-door taser salesmen, and hit and run driving is no longer a crime - it's the national sport. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Narland's national animal is the Narbuck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Church of the Pioneer.

Narland is ranked 71,762nd in the world and 17th in Libertatem for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3,172.06 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
