The Empire of Nogori is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Lukas Van Draken with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 5.189 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 Bergum. The average income tax rate is 50.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Nogorian economy, worth 971 trillion Draaks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 187,137 Draaks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, and the fate of the world literally rests on Chancellor Lukas Van Draken's fingers. 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 Earn, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Messianic Orthodox Church.

Nogori is ranked 158,518th in the world and 8,158th in The North Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 0.22 Average Smiles Per Day.
