The Magical Glitter Queendom of Neenee is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Melisande Rahl with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 14.619 billion Neeneeans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khatovar. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Neeneean economy, worth 695 trillion Glitters a year, is highly specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,563 Glitters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

School children across the country are staging hunger strikes to protest government-mandated salads, bris parties are all the rage, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neenee's national animal is the Hippo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Neenee is ranked 153,892nd in the world and 26th in The Sportsbook for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -1.18 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
