The Worker's Paradise of No Such Place is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mengistu Pol Pot Ceaușescu with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, triple-decker prams, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.352 billion Proletarians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient No Such Placean economy, worth a remarkable 1,396 trillion Labours a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 167,197 Labours, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', top-shelf magazines feature risqué centrefold spreads of ladies' wrists, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, and doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. No Such Place's national animal is the Reactionary, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

No Such Place is ranked 43,636th in the world and 8th in The Snowy Peninsula for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
