The Community of Netherbright is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 443 million Styxes have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Equality River. The average income tax rate is 75.0%.

The Netherbrightian economy, worth 32.2 trillion Scales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 72,613 Scales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Purported secret military bases are dismissed by Leader to be highly-advanced toilet factories, fire and brimstone sermons are accompanied by napalm and fragmentation bombs, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, and the law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Netherbright's national animal is the Poseidon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Netherbright is ranked 80,924th in the world and 72nd in 21st Century Rome for Most Politically Free, scoring 65.05 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
