The United Socialist States of Nkumaland is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Hypatia Nkumahiah with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 919 million Nkumalandians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hypatia. The average income tax rate is 35.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Nkumalandian economy, worth 59.0 trillion Ninas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,176 Ninas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

High school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, public intoxication has decreased ever since fraternities were banned, fruit pickers with degrees in Elephant psychology are a common sight, and the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nkumaland's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nkumaland is ranked 30,763rd in the world and 949th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 48.15 quips per hour.
