The Kingdom of Noire Denholm is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The All Powerful Monty Phugotuborn with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 7.45 billion Noire Denholmians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gasselterboerveenschemond. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Noire Denholmian economy, worth a remarkable 1,390 trillion Skuls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 186,672 Skuls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, a child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, and the military claims that their threatening letters are signed with the blood of their enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noire Denholm's national animal is the Great Mock Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Dark Cult of Bothughachau.

Noire Denholm is ranked 11,690th in the world and 393rd in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,042.24 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
