The Guacward Detective of Nocostia is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its lack of airports, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The cynical population of 2.051 billion Nocostians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 31.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Nocostian economy, worth 89.3 trillion Corals a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,563 Corals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

A fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, N-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and a major religion has been named as Nocostia's national religion. Crime is totally unknown. Nocostia's national animal is the Leafy Sea Dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Nocostia is ranked 78,789th in the world and 2nd in PurpleImperium for Highest Poor Incomes, with 27,272.25 Standard Monetary Units.
