The Grand Union of Nephara is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Margravine Althea Carrick with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.447 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 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Nepharim economy, worth 769 trillion pound Taurines 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 57,217 pound Taurines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Corvistone Natural History Museum, the fattest folk in Nephara look to be the happiest ones, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons. 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 127,823rd in the world and 53rd in Rushmore for Most Pro-Market, scoring 38.78 on the Rand Index.
