The Empire of Nokelon is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Zavier Long with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, otherworldly petting zoo, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.608 billion Nokelonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anobar. The average income tax rate is 49.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nokelonian economy, worth 192 trillion Nokelonian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 119,781 Nokelonian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nokelon's national animal is the Giant Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nokelon is ranked 90,657th in the world and 5,179th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,107.28 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
