The Time-and-Space Benders of Natuurkunde is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Nikola Maxwell E Steiner Tesla with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.393 billion Physicists 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, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Site 20 Headquarters of Linear Collidor. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Physicist economy, worth 552 trillion Mysteriously and Very Potent Dark Energies 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 125,698 Mysteriously and Very Potent Dark Energies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Physicists, gossip magazines have pictures of President Nikola Maxwell E Steiner Tesla sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Natuurkunde's national animal is the Unstable and Uncuddable Large Wormhole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Transcendental Ohm Resistance Movement.

Natuurkunde is ranked 159,867th in the world and 9th in The Beech Beach House for Most Devout, with 3.21 Prayers Per Hour.
