The Empire of Nokelon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zavier Long with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.221 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, socially-minded, 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 39.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Nokelonian economy, worth 131 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 Book Publishing. 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 107,981 Nokelonian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and bars are packed at all hours. 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.
