The Watchfires of NLF is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its public floggings and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, devout population of 9.797 billion NLFians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 14.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The NLFian economy, worth 471 trillion $$s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,137 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

It's rare to find an unchewed pencil, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, eight-year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement, and politicians are battling inequality by declaring themselves better than everyone else. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NLF's national animal is the laughing swordfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

NLF is ranked 75,804th in the world and 1st in National Liberation Front for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 76.41 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
