The Magisterium of Nogori is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Archon Nohl Hamriyenko with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 8.346 billion Nogorians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Martensgrad. The average income tax rate is 51.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Nogorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,703 trillion Stronks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 204,060 Stronks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

A cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and many suspect the government "doth protest too much" with their curiously specific denials of conspiracy theories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nogori's national animal is the Wilda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orthodox Messianism.

Nogori is ranked 113,761st in the world and 5,946th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 16.75 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
