The Empire of Nogori is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Lukas Van Draken with a fair hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, ritual sacrifices, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 5.904 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%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nogorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,096 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 185,730 Draaks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests, ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, and you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health. 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 130,443rd in the world and 7,258th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 11.46 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
