The Colony of Nimphadale is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Disguy Williams with an even hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.412 billion Nimphadaleans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pandalea. The average income tax rate is 66.4%.

The powerhouse Nimphadalean economy, worth 103 trillion times a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,636 times, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nimphadale's national animal is the sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Haututu.

Nimphadale is ranked 158,717th in the world and 6,437th in the South Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -2.97 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
