The Grand Union of Nephara is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Margravine Ulrica Lindt with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.388 billion Nepharim hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corvistone. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Nepharan economy, worth a remarkable 1,003 trillion guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,693 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", and being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nephara's national animal is the cormorant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is lapsed Catharism.

Nephara is ranked 61,958th in the world and 34th in Rushmore for Most Income Equality, scoring 55.03 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
