The Empire of Nokelon is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Zavier Long with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.483 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 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 50.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Nokelonian economy, worth 318 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 128,228 Nokelonian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
The country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, organ donation is compulsory, tabloids coo over Zavier Long's expected child, and politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional. 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.
