The Left-Wing People's Republic of Nohol is a massive, safe nation, ruled by CDU Louis-Philippe Francois with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.209 billion Noholians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frederic-des-Peuples. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Noholian economy, worth 113 trillion Franc Populaires a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,850 Franc Populaires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, corporate lobbying has been outlawed, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nohol's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Nohol is ranked 214,223rd in the world and 314th in The Free Nations Region for Fattest Citizens, with 7.8 Obesity Rate.
