The Who Is Your Daddy of Nodin is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Padwick with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 33.116 billion Nodinians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frickenhausen. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Nodinian economy, worth a remarkable 7,363 trillion $$s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 222,344 $$s, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,374,755 per year while the poor average 15,560, a ratio of 88.3 to 1.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-$$ charge on their phone bill, companies have begun running campaigns to stop people from remembering their brand name, and corporations have to consult a fifty-page "sanctions spreadsheet" to determine which countries they are allowed to do business with. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nodin's national animal is the prairie oyster, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Aubrey-Maturinism.

Nodin is ranked 59,969th in the world and 13th in BLITZKRIEG for Most Stationary, with 505.77080825092 days.
